Smoking ceremonies are an ancient custom among Aboriginal Australians in which native plants are burnt to produce smoke to ward off bad spirits, acknowledge ancestors and pay respect to the land and sea of country. The smoke is believed to have healing and cleansing properties.

The aim of the ceremony is to begin the day with a sincere acknowledgment to Aboriginal people from the Adelaide regional and across Australia.  The ceremony will entail a range of gestures of hope and wellbeing.

Join us in the morning of Australia Day in Elder Park to learn more about Aboriginal culture and experience this important event.
