UNDER A FULL MOON
Celebrating Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Youth culture in rural and remote Australia
In July 1998 in the far North Queensland mining town of Weipa something very important for the future of all Australians unfolded. Some called it history. Some called it hope. The Governor General Sir William Deane described it as "reconciliation in action". It was the first Croc Festival - two days of dance, music, sport, and stories.
