Charters Towers Regional Council, Queensland

Connecting Through Three Generations of Time

Charters Towers Regional Council has been working with three generations of pastoralists and Aboriginal families who have a traditional association or ownership of the land. The first step was bringing the families together through informal gatherings on the theme of country. Over a series of social encounters and gradually more creative activities, the project aimed to build the bonds of trust that could eventually lead to Aboriginal families building new businesses and new lives on land shared with the pastoralists.
