Join us for the Long Walk 2018
From 9am, Sunday 10 June
The Long Walk commemorates Aboriginal AFL player Michael Long’s walk from Melbourne to Canberra in 2004, to take a stand against racial abuse.
Today it is a mission of hope, with Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians rallying together.
Bring your family and join us in walking from the State Library of Queensland to The Gabba, arriving in time for the Brisbane Lions' game against Essendon. The first 400 people to register for the Long Walk will receive a FREE ticket to the game, and a Long Walk t-shirt.
Walk for unity, for recognition, and for a united Australia.
Don't miss this deadly day out!
