Celebrating Clarence Valley's heritage (7-11 March 2017)
A week of exciting events to celebrate Clarence Valley’s unique story was held when the Heritage Near Me Roadshow rolled into Grafton on 7-11 March 2017. Celebrating Clarence Valley’s heritage aimed to encourage locals to protect, share, and celebrate their unique local heritage.
For the first time, the Heritage Near Me Roadshow teamed-up with OEH’s innovative Saving our Species (SoS) program, to help the community better understand and appreciate the area’s unique natural heritage alongside its Aboriginal culture and historic buildings.
A week of fun-filled activities took place in partnership with Clarence Valley Council and culminated in a Community Day on Saturday 11 March. Highlights included Aboriginal cultural dances, ‘Penny’ the SoS scent detection dog, a 360 degree video showcasing local heritage stories, great music and a sausage sizzle.
