12 November – A Deeper History of the Sutherland Shire
Speaker: Bruce Howell
Having had a long involvement with aboriginal communities as a local resident and being a keen student of the early history of the area, Bruce has a unique insight. With a deeply felt perspective of life around the land and waterways before and since the first arrival of British ships to our shores in 1770 and 1788, Bruce opens up the rich heritage found in the Sutherland Shire.”
