The communities of the 5 Lands Walk connect many cultures together,
Like most of Australia the Central Coast is home to a wide variety of ethnic communities.
Many have formed formal groups to help one another, maintain their connections with their languages and culture and to make connections and friendships with Australian society. They celebrate their differences and their similarities.
We encourage these groups to take part in the 5 lands Walk, to share their cultures with us all, and to make their own wider connections.
The public schools that serve the
communities of the 5 Lands Walk value these connections and encourage their pupils to take part ion the cultural and artistic events to improve understanding and tolerance.
The Aboriginal Community
But the glue that binds these communities together is the Aboriginal community.
The 5 Lands Walk takes place on land originally occupied by them, and they welcome the cultures and the children to the Land and share their culture and stories with everyone.
This is the very essence of "connecting people to people and people to place".
