We have been working closely with our local Indigenous community who have been providing vital ideas and feedback about how we can make the new hospital culturally sensitive and welcoming for everyone.

In late 2021 we held a Connecting with Country workshop and Design Jam with over 35 local Indigenous community members. It provided an opportunity for people to share stories and exchange ideas about Nowra Park and the Blackbutt Tree, and think about how the Aboriginal heritage and cultural significance will be imbedded in the design of the new hospital.  

You can view the outcomes of the report here.

Work will continue with the Aboriginal community as the project progresses.
