Representing Australia in October 2017 at major events in Austria, Hungary, Malta and Cyprus on behalf of the Australian Ambassadors and Australian High Commissioners of those countries respectively, the Koomurri men and women powered into 2018 with the Koomurri Aboriginal Dance Troupe gracing the nationally televised events across the Sydney Harbour for Australia Day, also known as Survival Day for indigenous people. We performed from Barangaroo to Campbell's Cove in The Rocks and on for a grand finalé on the floating stage of Circular Quay with Christine Anu and surrounded by fireworks.
Our team look forward to again working with our wonderful clients from years past and welcome the many new people we are about to meet across Australia and internationally in 2018 as we celebrate our culture with Australians of all backgrounds and citizens of the world.
