Without our fantastic volunteers and sponsors, there would be no 5 Lands Walk.
They are all committed to offering you a unique event that helps you
connect to people and place - and you won't have to pay 1 cent to participate.
Our sponsors provide the financial, business and infrastructure resources needed to put
on the festival. They are truly great organisations run by great people.
Their support allows us to provide food and water, transport, staging, insurance, safety,
traffic control, garbage collection, track & program information, music,
art displays, printing, competition prizes, accounting, marketing,
etc etc etc; everything we need to put on an event we hope you'll enjoy and which is free of charge.
Our volunteers provide the creativity, commitment, skills, cultural experience and
manpower to design, operate and perform in this major event. Over 700 people
contributed their time and skills in
. This ranged from pre-schoolers
performing their whale dance, through Aboriginal men visiting from interstate
to perform corroboree, to school kids doing song and dance, ethnic communities
presenting their cultures and offering their food, high school kids providing
marshalling and shuttle bus services, artists curating art exhibitions and
retired business people providing operational, marketing and accounting support.
There's a huge amount of work done, for free, by a lot of people. And we thank every one of them.
