National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The Rocks Discovery Museum and Sydney Learning Adventures will be holding tours, exhibitions and activities to celebrate and show our support.

Giba-Nura: Aboriginal History & Heritage Tours

Giba means rock or stone and Nura means place or country in the language of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the original inhabitants of the Sydney basin.

Aboriginal education guides facilitate exploration of 'first contact', Aboriginal resistance to colonisation, and its impact on the Gadigal people from an Aboriginal perspective.
