The Significance of The Date
November 24 & 25 marks just over one year since the deeply historic Return to Country of Mungo Man in 2017. This profound healing moment when the ancient remains of Mungo Man, a 42 000 years old human ancestor, were returned to his country in the Willandra Lakes Region of New South Wales, marks an important moment for Australia’s waking up and growing up.
Fields of Healing: A Journey of Awakening is honoured to commemorate this date and this powerful event and we are delighted that representatives of Mungo Man and Mungo Lady’s decedents will be an active participants in the commemoration.
North Byron Parklands is a stunningly beautiful 660-acre cultural arts and music events venue. It is one of Australia’s premier festival sites, each year hosting Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival. “Fields of Healing” is delighted to have such a beautiful and sacred space in which to be held.
