NAIDOC: we all stand on sacred ground

Housing and Public Works Minister Leeanne Enoch joined the RTA at the Musgrave Park Family Fun Day on Friday 10 July.

The RTA is a proud supporter of the event as it provides an opportunity to talk about renting.

"About 63 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland live in rented homes but in some areas in the Far North the number is as high as 80 per cent," RTA Senior Community Outreach Officer Valentina Dimoska said.

This year’s theme ‘We all stand on sacred ground’ pays tribute to the strong connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to land and sea.
