Aboriginal connections on country are critical. After discovering from local Aboriginal elders that Gegedzerick was a traditional training ground for children and local youth, Upper Snowy Landcare Network (USLN) welcomed more than 80 people to ‘Aboriginal Walk-over on Gegedzerick’. Supported by funds from the NSW Landcare Program’s “Working Together” Aboriginal Engagement Program and South East Local Land Services, the event aimed to educate locals in recognising Aboriginal objects, artefacts, landscape features, and perspectives on land management and traditional Aboriginal culture.

This presentation explores how walkovers are full of inspiration, drawing on past and recent events such as the successful USLN gathering, what is happening amongst multi-age brackets in rural areas to foster connections like these, and how Landcare networks are engaging with local Aboriginal communities to promote skills, knowledge and practical sharing.
