Yana Yenyin Baia: Go with the rising tide

Price: FREE  |   Recommended Audience Age: All ages

The rivers, creeks, beaches and lakes of the area now known as the Gold Coast have long been its life blood. From the region’s first inhabitants, tens of thousands of years ago, to shaping the city’s more recent identity, lifestyle and economy, the waterways of the Gold Coast have played an important role in sustaining all those who call this area home. 

Discover the significant social, spiritual, educational, historical, and natural resources of these waterways through the lens of our local first nations people and the oldest form of capturing history, storytelling, in the documentary film and panel discussion Yana Yenyin Baia: Go with the rising tide.
