Journey to Recognition
The Journey to Recognition has finished its first leg at the Garma Festival in North East Arnhem Land! Youtube clip about celebrating the arrival.
Since starting in Melbourne in May, our teams have walked more than 700kms, cycled more than 1,200kms and driven over 2,700kms. Over 3,500 people have journeyed with us along the way.
We'll restart on September 24 in Darwin, head west to Broome before forging on to Perth. Standby for more updates from the road on Facebook and Twitter.
