Music for takayna/Tarkine bush dance

Saturday 18 August 2018

Come along to the Fitzroy Town Hall Ballroom on Saturday 18 August from 7pm to 11pm to raise funds for the Bob Brown Foundation’s campaign to protect the Tarkine national park in Tasmania’s North West. 

All funds raised will go towards protecting takayna/Tarkine as a world heritage listed national park, returned to Aboriginal ownership. 

The Bob Brown Foundation is all about action with a vision to protect Australia's wild and scenic natural places of ecological and global significance.

Tarkine is in a remote part of North West Tasmania. The Tarkine is a vast wilderness area supporting Australia's largest tract of cool temperate rainforest, spanning wild windswept beaches, extensive buttongrass plains and pristine wild rivers. It is of great significance to Tasmania's Aboriginal people and a relict of the ancient continent of Gondwana and related to temperate forests in Patagonia and the South Island of New Zealand. 

This campaign for the the Tarkine is calling for its recognition as a national park and world heritage area and is taking strategic and considered action step by step to reach this goal by 2020. They need your help to protect this wild and ancient place from destructive mining and logging.

The night will commence at 7pm and conclude at 11pm. 

You must purchase a ticket to attend. Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for concession. 

This event has been made possible with the support of the Belgium Avenue Neighbourhood House.
