Find out where it all began in NAIDOC Week display

TO celebrate NAIDOC Week, the Schaeffer House Museum has an exhibition for all eyes to see and minds to ponder.

With the week's theme of 'We all stand on sacred ground. Learn, respect and celebrate', the exhibition is a chance for people to learn more about the Aboriginal people who lived here before the discovery of red cedar.

Known as 'red gold', this brought the Europeans to settle here and change our landscape forever.

The display at Schaeffer House shows the history of the clash of cultures and hopefully leads to more understanding of the impact on Aboriginal people.

Also at present there is a display of some of the bird paintings and landscapes by Gladys and Doris O'Grady.

Schaeffer House is at 190 Fitzroy St and is open from 1-4pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Head along to learn more about the history of our region and our country.
