There was plenty of action happening at the Boomerangs home ground on Thursday as hundreds of locals joined in the NAIDOC Cultural and Family Day.
“NAIDOC Week is a wonderful time when the community come out to celebrate Aboriginal culture,” Miyay Birray manager and event-organiser Darrel Smith said.
More than 100 people showed to Burt Jovanovich Oval to try their hand at a range of art and sports activities.
Children got creative with slime, painting and colouring-in activities. Face painting was an expected hit as was the miniature ninja warrior course, bowls and the running competition.
Adults had a chance to share in the fun with a game of touch football. Moree police officers even took to the field for the good cause.
“NAIDOC celebrations brings out a lot of people from the community, who don’t normally get the chance to do something. The elders can mix with the kids: it’s a good way to connect the generations,” Mr Smith said.
