Aboriginal Community Working Group

The Aboriginal Community Working Group was established in 2020 to build relationships and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians. This group informs and advises the Port Augusta City Council on ways in which we work together to identify opportunities that meet individual and shared aspirations, drive equality and build sustainability in our local community.

The Working Group meets monthly and has provided critical input to the development of the Reconciliation Action Plan providing insight as to how Council can be more inclusive of Aboriginal groups, individuals and communities. They have embraced their role in this process, and will be positive community advocates for Council, with the roll out of this plan.

Reconciliation Week

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Annually, Port Augusta acknowledges the importance of Reconciliation Week. Community activities are planned to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Are you interested in being involved in Reconciliation Events across Port Augusta?

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia annually in the first week of July, to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Public Murals

Public art reflects a community and its surroundings working to cultivate a cultural identity by setting a community apart and attracting people to its uniqueness. Artwork helps express a community’s values and creates an elevated sense of awareness for community members and visitors.
