Event description

Join us for St George-Canterbury's first Resilience Walk!  Come as a family to walk from historic Tempe House (2 mins from Wolli Creek station) to Girrahween Park (2 mins from Bardwell Park station), following Wolli Creek and stopping along the way to hear stories of Resilience and Survival.  You will learn about Aboriginal warriors and custodians who cared for the waters and land, Chinese market gardeners, and mangroves, trees and bats!  A rare opportunity to get a new perspective on the place you live, and to meet your neighbours, including at a BBQ at Girrahween Park.  For those who can't do the morning walk, we have added an afternoon walk back from the BBQ to Wolli Creek.

Tickets are free. But bookings are essential using Humanitix.
