NAIDOC 2023 "For Our Elders" Bushland Tour of Balls Head
To kick off NAIDOC week meet Trent (Koori Kinnections facilitator) and Gareth (North Sydney Bushcare) at The Coal Loader for a tour of Balls Head bushland. Learn about the natural history of this stunning peninsular, the disruptive events during its industrial period, the return to nature and community, and the stories passed down from our Indigenous Elders of how the endemic flora and fauna of the area can be used and protected for future generations.
