Aboriginal communities changed dramatically 200 years ago with the arrival of European settlers. Only recently has recognition of their art and culture begun to surface in Australia. This has been helped in part with initiatives like the annual Laura Festival, which aims to promote relations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians.
The Laura Festival is a gathering of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people, held every two years near the Laura River, in Far North Queensland. It is a cultural and dance festival, and aims to promote relations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. Local communities perform their traditional music, songs and dance and have stalls displaying and selling their traditional crafts.
Book a holiday to Australia and experience the natural beauty Ayers Rock (Uluru), pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef and iconic Sydney skyline. Other attractions include the untouched coastline of Western Australia and self-driving along the Great Ocean Road.
