NAIDOC Week Valley Reserve Exhibition

In conjunction with the City of Monash’s NAIDOC week celebrations our exhibition of photographs from Valley Reserve will be open this week in the Track Gallery.

The photographs are inspired by Aboriginal knowledge, culture and the unique flora and fauna found in Valley Reserve, Mount Waverley. We engaged with Aboriginal Elders and artists in the lead up to this year’s NAIDOC Week celebrations, to listen and learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture and Country.

More information about the council’s other NAIDOC week activities can be found at NAIDOC Week 2021.

Valley Reserve Walk – Saturday 1st May 2021

This Saturday we have a tour of Valley Reserve with Ian Hunter about the indigenous plants and medicinal properties found in the Reserve.

The Waverley Camera Club will take photographs that will go towards an art exhibition in the Track Gallery, Mount Waverley Community Centre during NAIDOC Week (5-12 July). There may be an opportunity to take photos on the tour but I anticipate members will want to come back and take more images at a later time.
