Media Release – Country to Coast, Queensland (CCQ). 6 July 2023

During NAIDOC week, 2-9 July, the team are supporting events that celebrate the rich history, culture and this year’s theme ‘For our Elders’.

Across every generation, Elders have played, and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families across the Central Queensland, Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast region, and the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders is a key priority for us.

Elders are cultural knowledge holders, trailblazers, nurturers, advocates, teachers, survivors, leaders, hard workers and loved ones across Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities.

Juanita O’Rourke, Primary Health Coordinator Country to Coast hopes everyone across the region gets the opportunity to attend NAIDOC events across Central Queensland, Wide Bay and the Sunshine Coast this week, celebrating our Elders. View more here.
