Glebe Aboriginal Cultural Bus Tour

Glebe NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) kindly agreed to run an Aboriginal Cultural History Bus Tour for the Festival. The trip began at Bicentennial Park with a smoking ceremony performed by Uncle Les McLeod. Uncle Les was also our bus driver. From there, we braved Glebe’s Saturday morning traffic, to take in a few of the culturally important sites in Glebe. Chernai Smith, our tour leader, was an engaging speaker who shared with us some of her own story. We were also very privileged to be accompanied by Aunty Barbara McGrady, the well-known photographer and local Glebe elder. The Glebe Society is very grateful to Glebe NAIDOC for hosting us.
