In light of The Long Walk 2017 which took place on Saturday May 27, Southern Cross Pacific celebrates the challenges we have overcome and recognises the journey still to come on the road to reconciliation.

The week-long celebration is commemorated by two key dates; May 27 marks the anniversary of the 1967 referendum which recognised Indigenous peoples in the national census, while June 3 marks the Australian High Court’s landmark Mabo decision in 1992 which legally recognised the special relationship which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have with the land.
