Staff, patients and community members are invited to come together to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people during NAIDOC Week (7-14 July 2019).

The 2019 theme – VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH – invites you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future. The Indigenous voice of this country is over 65,000 plus years old. Let’s work together for a shared future.

The family fun day, held at St Columban’s College at Caboolture, will feature a Welcome to Country, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dancing and singing, cultural workshops and plenty of health stallholders.

A free BBQ lunch will be available, as well as plenty of activities for children including face painting, an animal farm, jumping castle, sports and rock climbing.

The Metro North Caboolture NAIDOC family fun day will be held from 9.30am–2.30pm on Tuesday 9 July at St Columban’s College, 100 McKean St Caboolture.
