  • As part of reconciliation week we had two very special guests, Aunty Julia and her son Tony here at Wollongbar today to conduct a smoking ceremony. A smoking ceremony is an ancient custom among Indigenous Australians that involves burning various native plants to produce smoke, which is believed to have cleansing properties and the ability to ward off bad spirits.
