Walk on Guriwal Country

To mark NAIDOC Week, the Sydney Children's Hospital Stage 1 and Minderoo Children's Comprehensive Cancer Centre (SCH1/MCCCC) project team participated in a Walk on Country on Guriwal, or La Perouse, land.

Hosted by the Gujaga Foundation, the initiative was as an opportunity for the project team to learn more about the cultural significance and history of the land which the new hospital and research centre is being built on.

The project team embraced the opportunity to hear from Aboriginal community members about the oldest, continuous living culture on earth, and how local language and storytelling is being shared with younger generations.
The Gujaga Foundation is the peak organisation leading language, cultural and research activities within the La Perouse Aboriginal community.

The project team strives to work collaboratively with Elders, knowledge holders and community to create a hospital environment that respects and honours culture.
