What is Invasion Day and Survival Day? On 26 January, in a tradition almost as old as Australia Day being commemorated on that date, many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people hold community events and rallies reflecting on past injustices, their ongoing survival and struggles, and pride in culture.

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.


UMFC acknowledges the support of the Victorian and the Australian Governments
