We are pleased to announce the success of our AGM which was held in the afternoon of 27th September 2019.

Welcome and congratulations to our new Committee members! We wish you all the best in your new roles.
It was a fantastic meeting. The occasion commenced in our gardens with an intimate and very moving performance by traditional dancers who depicted through movement, stories and customs of their ancestors. They showed us the dances of the native birdlife, and told us stories of how their families learned to fish, stories of how the land was formed, and of their deep-rooted connection to the earth. Another traditional owner, Tess, who has been working with the Centre on a Cultural Safety Plan then delivered a speech which brought many members to tears. We are extremely proud to have been a part of this experience.
