A host of activities were held in the Illawarra to celebrate and acknowledge NAIDOC Week (July 7-14).
One of the most popular events as in previous years, was the NAIDOC Family Fun Day celebration in Warrawong.
More than 1000 people dropped by the Green St Reserve on Tuesday, July 9 to take part in the seventh annual event run by Barnardos South Coast.
The family fun day was held to coincide with NAIDOC Week, which recognises the rich history and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Well-known and highly respected elders Uncle Gerald Brown and Aunty Lorraine Brown did a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony.
