The weather was glorious for an event filled with cultural dance, Bundjalung language, local Aboriginal art, story telling, weaving, sand art, bush tucker planting, face painting and food.

Performers and speakers on the day included Bunyarra Culture Collective, IndigiDub, Murwillumbah’s Kids Caring for Country and Uncle Athol Crompton to name a few.

Volunteer organisers Delta Kay and Belle Arnold were very pleased with the turn out on the day and happy to see so many jarjums having a great time.
