Project Description

Our purpose: Promote an ongoing process of reconciliation within Queensland

  • Facilitating and supporting mutually respectful and engaging relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Queenslanders.
  • Creating an environment for greater understanding of the unique position, diversity of cultures, languages and histories of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • Providing an improved understanding of Australian history and contemporary issues from an Indigenous Australian perspective and advocating against injustices suffered by Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • Opportunities to support the educational and training desires of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander people.

Some activities of the SCRG include:

  • Annual Coastal Walk
  • Shared History forums
  • Schools interaction (bursaries, graduation medals, homework clubs, special events)
  • NAIDOC Day at Cotton Tree participation
  • Networking with Sunshine Coast community groups
  • Satchels regularly sent to remote communities and Tent Embassy (clothes and other goods)
  • Facilitate the transport of blankets and bulky items to remote communities.

However, concerning inclusion and equity goals:

  • Where do we go from here?
  • What are our future milestones?
  • How do we accomplish them?

Will you come and be a part of our story?

The Sunshine Coast Reconciliation Group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the CWA Hall, 17 Kalinga Street, Caloundra at 2.30pm for a cuppa and at 3.00 – 4.30pm meeting.
