Solitary Islands Coastal Walk - indigenous signage

Aboriginal Cultural History – Indigenous Signage

The Walk presents and shares Aboriginal culture and heritage in a culturally appropriate manner and we worked with local Aboriginal people to develop the walk and interpretive information. The SICW was a traditional walking route of the Gumbaynggirr People. The signs feature Aboriginal place names, original art created by local Aboriginal artists, cultural information relevant to the walk and a welcome in Gumbaynggirr language.
