Interpretive walk registration
“Grounded in Truth
Walk Together with Courage”
This is the theme of Reconciliation Week 2019.
As part of the recognition in the Dungog Shire there will be a walk on the Dungog Common on Sunday 2nd June.
Why the Dungog Common? This land was set aside in the late 1800s as a reserve for public use. Some areas of the Common remain relatively undisturbed to this day. There are old trees – perhaps hundreds of years old. From high points on the Common there are extensive views. It is a place that evokes a sense of the way the land was before European settlement.
A meditative walk, will start at 1.00 PM from the saleyards car park on Short Street, Dungog.
It will be a walk on Gringai ground. The route will be relatively easy walking – a kilometre or so. It will take about an hour. There will be some short readings along the way and a few quiet minutes beneath the spreading branches of an old red gum.
This is a family friendly, easy walk for all to enjoy.
PLEASE NOTE due to the nature of natural terrain, this walk is NOT suitable for people with mobility difficulties unless you are prepared. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended and please bring water, snacks, sunscreen and wear appropriate clothing for the day. Any questions or concerns please note them in the special notes section and we will contact you to discuss.
