Gai-mariagal Festival

North Sydney Council acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on whose land we now stand and pay our respects to Elders past and present.

The Gai-mariagal Festival (formerly the Guringai Festival) was founded in 2001 and aims to raise awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the Northern Sydney region. The Festival has been postponed for 2020, however more information about the event can be found here.


In celebration of NAIDOC Week 2020, North Sydney Council proudly presented the Looking Forward, Looking Back exhibition in Council’s inTransit Art Space.
