 The 4th February 2019 marked the 80th Anniversary of the Cummeragunja Walk-Off where many Aboriginal families left the mission to live in an area fondly known as the Mooroopna flats, next to the Kaiela (Goulburn River) and Midland highway between Mooroopna and Shepparton in Victoria.

This exhibition will be showcased at The Connection Shepparton - Home of Yurri Catering which is closely located and interconnected with the Mooroopna Flats and Yorta Yorta history.

Identity, culture, family and sharing connection to country are at the heart of this project.
