Indigenous Soldiers Remembrance and Healing Project.


Recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Ipswich who have lost their lives in conflict, and contributed towards peace.


Ipswich, known traditionally in the Yagara language as Tulmur, has been home to Aboriginal people since before the beginnings of recorded European arrival. Aboriginal peoples owned, had sovereignty over and cultivated the lands, waters, flora and fauna of Ipswich.


The Indigenous Accord 2020 - 2025 is an agreement between Ipswich City Council and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities of Ipswich on how we will work together towards our common vision.


The Indigenous Soldiers Remembrance and Healing project focuses on Action 1.4.1 in the Indigenous Accord 2020 - 2025. This action item is the culmination of many years of engagement with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community and with Indigenous service men and women, past, present and their descendants.
