Redfern Walking Tour
AIYA NSW invites you to the celebrate NAIDOC Week 2020 with an Aboriginal walking tour of Redfern, run by Tribal Warrior. Our tour guide, Aunty Donna Ingram, a Wiradjuri woman who identifies Redfern as her cultural home, will describe the significance of Redfern to the Aboriginal Community; how Redfern was and how it is now, through storytelling and shared experiences. Starting at the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence (NCIE), we will enjoy a walking tour of Redfern through Aboriginal eyes, as we walk from NCIE to Eveleigh Street, stopping at significant sites such as the recently restored '40,000 Years' mural; and down to "The Block" then over to Gadigal Radio Station, Wyanga Aboriginal Aged Care and the Aboriginal Medical Service before returning to the NCIE. Tickets are $5 for AIYA Members exclusively.
