Australia Day 2016 Flag Raising in Nillumbik
The Nillumbik Reconciliation Group supported by the Nillumbik Shire Council held a Flag Raising to start the Australia Day Citizenship ceremony.
Our Indigenous representative was John Baxter who gave a stirring speech about the welfare of Aboriginal people today.
He raised the Indigenous Flag with the assistance of Perry Wandin (Wurundjeri Elder) and was watched by the large crowd who then entered the Nillumbik Community Centre to continue the Australia Day Citizenship ceremony.
