About the event

Wunya Ngulum: Welcome Everyone

On 7th September 2024 a conference titled "Wunya Ngulum" (Welcome Everyone) will commemorate the Bicentenary of the Moreton Bay Settlement at Redcliffe. A joint committee comprising the Royal Historical Society of Queensland, History Redcliffe and the Bribie Island Historical Society will be hosting the conference to be held at the Mon Komo Hotel at Redcliffe.  Some twelve papers will be presented orally at the conference and a book will be published with some 24 chapters relating to the foundation of the Settlement.

The Conference ticket price is $65 and includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

The Bicentenary is a time to reflect on the facts of history; and to view and interpret them through the lens of twenty-first century analysis. All Australians, those who descend from our First Peoples and those who do not, acknowledge the clash of two proud cultures - each ignorant of the history and heritage of the other - but, as Australians today share the common history of both.
