Australia Day Celebration

Australia Day/Afrekete Celebration Video

On Wednesday, January 26 the Southern Beaches Community Garden partnered with members of the Afrekete Community Organisation to put on a unique celebration of cultural awareness. 

Compliments of a generous grant from the National Australia Day Council (NADC), the SBCG would host traditional music and dance performances from the Torres Strait Islands, Cuba and Southeast Queensland’s very own indigenous Yugambeh tribe.

The day would include a traditional Torres Strait Kup Murri feast, a childrens’ potting workshop and the start of an ongoing mural painting project. 

It was a very special day and one captured brilliantly through the professional lens of Lee Corrington from Noah Productions.

Thank you Lee and thank you to all the performers, community-minded contributors/donors and volunteers that came together to make this Australia Day in the garden one to remember for a very long time to come.
