Due to a massive response we have had to close registrations for the September 23rd launch event in Melbourne.

There is simply a huge national interest in this moment when Mungo Man finally Returns to Country. The good news is that there will be other event and ways to stay connected to the community as we prepare for the big moments on November 17-19, 2017. Please complete the form below to get connected and receive early invitations to coming events.

The Return to Country of Mungo Man in November 2017, represents a one-time opportunity for a long overdue and powerful acknowledgment of Aboriginal Australians as the oldest living culture on Earth. This long-awaited moment offers space for truth-telling and healing for all Australians, commemorating the oldest modern humans known outside of Africa and one of the first expressions of spiritual consciousness in the entire human journey.

The Aboriginal Advisory Group to the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, have requested that this moment is commemorated with a public festival befitting such a momentous occasion. They have asked this event to be free for all Australians. In order to make this dream come true, we need your help. We are inviting you to a very special launch event to help kickoff the crowdfunding campaign, on September 23rd from 1pm -3:30pm at Koorie Heritage Trust in Melbourne’s CBD.

Traditional Owners from Mungo National Park will be present as will other indigenous and community leaders, Professor Jim Bowler who made the Mungo discoveries, Return to Country headline artist Archie Roach as well as Creative Director Shane Howard. We invite you for what will be a very important step in a journey of national significance, as Mungo Man leads us in Return to Country.
