5 Lands Walk - Saturday 20th June

5 Lands Information (pdf 2886 KB)

The 5 Lands Walk is a cultural, physical, spiritual and fun event brought to life by volunteers from many of the communities of the NSW Central Coast. It's a gift from to you from the Communities of the Central Coast.

In 2015 it's on Saturday, 20 June.

It's five different festivals held around the Surf Clubs of the 5 Lands, and connected by 10kms of walks along beaches, over headlands, through the bush, along footpaths and streets.

It has Aboriginal ceremony and culture, music, food, artworks, gigantic kites, whales, dance, sculptures on the beach, craft workshops and it showcases many different ethnic communities. They are proudly sharing their culture, stories and food with you.

So it connects you with:

The local Aboriginal community – the original occupants of the 5 Lands whose Elders are its guardians.

  • Five beachside communities - the 5 Lands of MacMasters Beach, Copacabana, Avoca Beach, North Avoca and Terrigal
  • Local ethnic communities – this year it includes the Indian, French, Irish, Chinese, Iranian, Fijian, Thai and Filipino;
  • The schools of the 5 Lands - a great bunch of kids
  • A stunning coastline, and
  • whales (hopefully! Well, we've never NOT seen any on the day)

    The humpback whale is the totem of the Darkinjung people of the Central Coast, so the whale forms an important part of the symbolism of the 5 Lands Walk. Presentations on whales and whale watching are a popular and spectacular part of the event, and with about 15,000 whales passing our beaches during their winter migration you have an excellent chance of seeing whales during the day, from the beaches and headlands.

    We call all that "connecting people to people and people to place".
