Hopes are high the “Kamilaroi: A Highway and a People” project will provide a greater understanding of the Gomeroi’s heritage and culture pre-contact.

Located at the Visitor Information Centre in Willow Tree, the installation, featuring interpretative panels and sculptures, will be unveiled during July’s NAIDOC Week.

“It is important as many people as possible know about this rich history and are able to share it,” said Liverpool Plains Shire Council’s director of economic and community development Neil McGarry.

“A considerable amount is known about the lives of the Gomeroi people, including social structures, ceremonial art, hunting and gathering techniques, as well as their interaction with other people.”
