The Cherbourg Walk , By Bilura Watu

Frame Option:
Sale price$179.99 AUD

This was a reflection on my time in 2013 when I was privileged enough to attend the Cherbourg walk with Yalari.  History:  Barambah Aboriginal Reserve was established in 1904, from gazetted land from Barambah Station in the South Burnett area of south-eastern Queensland.

In 1905 the Durundur Aboriginal reserve near Woodford closed and many of the Aboriginal inhabitants walked for three months travelling the 148km overland to Barambah Aboriginal Reserve, later renamed Cherbourg in 1931. Over the years since 1905, thousands of Aboriginal people from all over Queensland were either forcibly taken to Cherbourg or were born there and came to call the area ‘home’.

Today, Cherbourg is the third largest aboriginal community in Queensland. It is in honour of the Indigenous people’s strength, courage, leadership, and endurance, as well as the historical and cultural significance of that first ‘walk to Cherbourg’ in 1905, that Yalari holds the, ‘Commemorative Walk to Cherbourg’.
