A physical, spiritual and cultural journey along 10km of spectacular coastline.
The 5 Lands Walk is a unique Australian event, a collaboration between the Aboriginal peoples and the broader communities of Darkinjung Country. It is a free, day-long celebration where people from diverse walks of life and cultural backgrounds connect through walking together and experiencing Aboriginal culture, live music, art exhibitions, sculptural installations, and more.
The aim is connecting people to people and people to place – a place where no one is excluded, a place where family, friends and visitors are encouraged to celebrate life and creativity, connect to our deep Aboriginal history, and everything that brings us together today as a vibrant multi-cultural community on Darkinjung Country. In doing so we walk towards a more harmonious and inclusive future on the Central Coast and beyond.
It is held on the Saturday closest to the winter solstice, when the whales, a significant totem of the Darkinjung people, are migrating north. It begins with an opening ceremony the night before.
Journey at your own pace and experience the diverse cultural offerings and the landscape.. Although the full route is about 10km long, you don't have to complete the entire walk. You can sample just some of the programs. You can even drive between the lands or take the free shuttle bus between Terrigal and Macmasters.
