Wet weather NAIDOC week

A 'bush morning tea' was held in the Barossa Bushgardens last week as part of National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week.

In spite of the rainy and cold weather on Thursday July 11, community members dropped into the bushgardens to take part in a volunteer run event.

Barossa Bushgardens coordinator Naomi Rea said about 30 people braved the rain to make it a really enjoyable morning.

Mayor Bim Lange, who also attended the event, said it is never too late to become more informed about Australia's cultural history.

"It's important that we recognise all our historical, traditional and cultural past as part of the Barossa story."

The Barossa Council area spans the traditional land of the Ngaduri, Peramangk and Kaurna People.
