Time travel back 180 years to three seldom visited environments and events from the early contact period that marked the beginning of unimaginable loss and trauma for Dja Dja Wurrung people. The Hepburn Shire commissioned three videos for Reconciliation Week Tours, called ‘Peaks. Wetlands and Rivers’. Join Elder Uncle Ricky Nelson and Professor Barry Golding on these tours.

As you will know, we had to cancel the Winter issue. But we are using the down time to work on a new look for the print magazine and the website. The refreshed design of Secrets is aimed to reflect the ‘new normal’ moving forward. We hope the changes to the website will be live at the end of July and the print copy of the magazine will be released on 15th September.
