Burnett River Rocks research talk

Burnett River Rocks research talk

Tue 3 May 2022 12:30pm1:30pm

In the early 1970s, a significant sacred site of engraved rocks on the banks of the Burnett River, Bundaberg was excavated ahead of an irrigation project that flooded the area.

The rocks were relocated to several Queensland institutions, including the University of Queensland.

Now UQ Art Museum will be hosting Gooreng Gooreng artist Dylan Sarra to talk about his research into the Burnett River Rocks, and the ongoing project to repatriate them to their Country of origin.

All interested are welcome to attend Sarra’s address, from 12.30pm-1.30pm on Tuesday 3 May. Location note: This event will now be hosted at the Art Museum, as wet weather is forecast for the event date.
