10 Years Since the Declaration for Reconciliation Walk

Today marks 10 years since the Declaration for Reconciliation walks taking place in Australian capital cities.

In 1995 the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation first considered a proposal for the People’s Walk for Reconciliation.

This involved a group of indigenous people walking towards non-indigenous people along the Sydney Harbor Bridge and meeting physically and symbolically in the middle.

Over 200, 000 people walked in Sydney while further walks carried out in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth later that year saw estimates of over half a million Australians participating.
