Celebrating naidoc week at Nepean Hospital 

Early this week Nepean Blue Mountains Local Area Health District  kicked off #NAIDOCWeek2022 with a special community event at Nepean Hospital. 

The event Included a Welcome to Country by Local Elder Auntie Melissa Stubbings, Flag Raising Ceremony and cultural dance by Wagana Aboriginal Dancers.

“We continued the celebrations with market stalls by Aboriginal and Oceanic Arts & Crafts, sausage sizzle by Western Sydney Aboriginal Men’s Group and a performance by the incredible young talent at Yangkay Cultural Connect,” a spokesperson said. 

Due to wet weather and flooding conditions, Penrith City Council has had to postpone the NAIDOC celebrations at Jamison Park this Thursday 7 July. They will look to reschedule later this year.
