For over three decades, Council has marked the anniversary of first contact between the Gweagal Community and the crew of the Endeavour with a commemorative event. Over time, this commemoration has evolved into our annual ‘The Meeting Of Two Cultures’ event.

In 2020, we are proud to be working alongside La Perouse Local Aboriginal Land Council to deliver ‘The Meeting Of Two Cultures’, marking the 250th anniversary. The day’s program will include a Welcome to Country, corroboree and smoking ceremony conducted by members of the Gweagal, Dharawal and La Perouse Aboriginal community prior to official proceedings. The day will also include a variety of cultural workshops and experiences and the unveiling of commemorative sculptures.
