aboriginal ELDERS visit the site

Aboriginal Elders and community members came on site in late January to help set up the orientation for the future healing circle, located outside the new clinical services building.  

Designed in consultation and collaboration with our Elders and community, the healing circle will be a place where people can go to reflect, rewind and reconnect with nature. 

The ceremony of giving thanks to our grandfather sun made the orientation of this space of upmost importance – ensuring the circle captures the sunrise to the east and the sunset to the west.  

With special trees and stones selected, the space will acknowledge the connection between Campbelltown Hospital and Dharawal Country, recognising more than 60,000 years of Aboriginal culture in the region. 

A place of peace and calm for patients, staff, visitors and the wider community, this space will be a healing place for all.
