Aboriginal Community Plan - Bayikulinan

Consultation has now closed.

Tell us what you think about the draft Aboriginal Community Plan 2019-2023 - ‘Bayikulinan’ (to act in the future) now on exhibition.

In consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the wider community, Council has prepared the draft Plan to reflect the needs and future opportunities for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in Lake Macquarie.

This review of the previous Aboriginal Community Plan updates our focus areas and identifies strategies and actions for Council to deliver over the next four years.

Some of these actions include:

  • Assisting in the preparation of Swansea Heads boardwalk;
  • Working collaboratively to develop a new wing of the Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery dedicated to contemporary Aboriginal art;
  • Extending interpretive signage and artwork along the Fernleigh Awabakal Shared Track;
  • Continuing to fund cultural programs such as NAIDOC Week;
  • Assisting in developing an Aboriginal Cultural Centre; and
  • Advocating for ways to revive Aboriginal language and cultural practices.

To find out more contact Aboriginal Community Development Officer, Maree Edwards, at council@lakemac.nsw.gov.au or phone 02 4921 0333.
