Aboriginal women's heritage - Nowra

In this publication, nine Aboriginal women talk about their memories of living and working on the NSW south coast. Their stories centre on Nowra, as each woman has a link or special connection there.

Together, the women tell of the support and sense of connection that had united the community in Nowra in the early days. Their stories describe life as it was in and around Nowra, how parents managed to survive at a time where Aboriginal people had few opportunities, the seasonal vegetable picking and their work in domestic service.

This publication was produced in an effort to promote the historical experience of Aboriginal women along the coast of NSW.
