The Fraser-K’gari Island symposium is being held at the Hervey Bay campus of the University of the Sunshine Coast on the 7-8 June 2018.
The aim of the symposium is to share the work of USC’s Fraser-K’gari Island Research Archive and the findings of a collation of research undertaken on Fraser-K’gari Island over the years. The symposium is an opportunity for those who participate to share their knowledge and understanding of the unique values of the island. The gathering will generate further research questions, opportunities and collaborations.
A focus of the symposium is a celebration of 25 years of World Heritage status, what this means and how we protect the unique natural values of the island. It is also a celebration of K’gari’s cultural values and how they can be protected.
Registration for the symposium starts at 9.00-10.00 on Day 1 and the event finishes after lunch at 3.00 on Day 2. Morning tea and lunch is included on both days and afternoon tea on Day 1. The cost for registration is $149.
