Shoalhaven City Council - Walking on Country

Shoalhaven’s short film: Walking on Country

Monday, 17 August 2020

A beautiful new short film that celebrates the richness of Aboriginal cultural heritage.

We are pleased to announce the unveiling of a four-minute short film, titled ‘Walking on Country’, which explores personal narratives of connection to country by local individual Aboriginal community members in the Shoalhaven region. This film was funded by the  NSW Government through the Heritage Near Me program,  produced by Shoalhaven City Council together with a local Aboriginal community group of collaborators.  

Uncle Noel Butler, one of the community members featured in this inspirational film says, “...Aboriginal culture should belong to all Australians. By sharing our knowledge of this land, we can continue the longest living culture known to humans. We need to have a different value of the land and we can do it together; we can do it side by side.”
