We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land, the Gai-mariagal peoples on whose land we now stand. We pay our respects to the Elders past and present.
We would like to acknowledge the passing and contributions of those members of the local community who are no longer with us to celebrate the Gai-mariagal Festival.
The Gai-mariagal Festival
The Gai-mariagal Festival (formerly the Guringai Festival) was founded in 2001 and aims to raise awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the Northern Sydney region.
The festival usually starts on Sorry Day, 26 May and goes through the end of NAIDOC Week, the second week in July each year. The festival involves councils and numerous reconciliation and community groups. Events include workshops, art exhibitions, performances, films, talks and more.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.
