Using listening and walking as method, participants will be guided by experts in the military and environmental history of Rapid Creek, and with a Larrakia welcome to country and reflection, to think through how multiple histories, actions and events have shaped Rapid Creek. The topics covered will include Indigenous histories of Gurambai before and after colonisation, the piecemeal cumulative impacts of ‘development’ on the Rapid Creek catchment, the caring labour of people in Darwin who work to conserve what remains, and the everyday militarisms infiltrating Rapid Creek. Be prepared to have your perspectives challenged about this most beloved place.
The walk will commence at 5pm sharp from the car park
