Day 353: 9am

[Admin Luke] BRISBANE FOLK: There are LOTS of tickets still available on the bus from Brisbane to join Clinton in Canberra. We really really need to fill these seats up so PLEASE BUY A TICKET and come along!!

You can also buy #PayItForward tickets for people who can’t afford their own.


Day 353: 9am

[Admin Gee] The Team are currently attending a Welcome and a School Visit but will be resuming the walk today from the Mittagong Hotel, walking towards Goulburn along the Old Hume Hwy and probably the M31.

Will update as we hear more!


Day 353: 10am

[Admin Luke] Good news, the Governor General will definitely be in town and available to meet with Clinton on Wednesday next week…..

We just might need to raise the pressure a bit to get him to actually come out and have a proper meeting with Clinton and the Elders at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy

More info soon.


Day 353: 1pm

[Admin Luke] Just got another reply from the Governor General’s office. He’s refusing to come out and discuss issues with Clinton and Aboriginal Elder’s at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy. Instead his office insists only on a 1-on-1 conversation, and only up at Government House.

I think it’s time for you all to give their office a phone call and politely ask the Governor General to come out and meet with Clinton and the Aboriginal Elders at the Aboriginal Tenty Embassy on September 6.

Here’s the number: (02) 6283 3533

Where is the respect for Sovereign First Nation people?? Clinton has walked 5500km, Elders are traveling from across the country and the Governor General refuses to come out and hear their stories and take their messages for the Queen??

Today with elder Dookie O’Loughlin who telling me story about the Dreaming story of the Kaurna – Tjilbruke, the water holes, animals and lore, and it’s connection from north to south. I just wanted to thank elder cookie newchurch for taking his time to see us and to talk with about some thing

[Guest Post] The man that Brotha Clinton is seated next too has spent the most part of his life, dedicated his life in fact to the restoration of Narungga and Kaurna culture and language.
He was a lecture at Tauondi for almost 30 years, ran his own classes teaching language and culture to his people. He did this with Mission School education. Not only did he teach it at Tauondi but took it out to our children in the schools, worked collaboratively with Councils around the Adelaide plains area to keep cultural/sacred sites safe and protected while also including the importance of these sites to the Kaurna and Narungga peoples. He laid our claim to this land with whites by protecting those sites, that we have been here thousands of years. He protected the proof of our existence and connection to dispel white myths.
He was the nucleus in establishing the Kaurna Cultural Living Centre which also includes Tjilburke Dreaming Story, Buthera’s Rock on Narungga land, Walk the York. All the language programs, and knowledge of how our lands was formed, plus many more programs to do with culture to many to name. This man, who is the only Narungga/Kaurna man alive today who is walking cultural library for Kaurna and Narungga. When our cultures was almost on the brink of extinction He gave its back its life. All those others that teach culture today can only teach because of him.
After all his dedication and commitment this year my father Kevin (Dookie) O’Loughlin will receive his Doctorate in Education and he deserves recognition for his life long endeavors. Although he is 70 he continues not only to promote our culture but also fights in the background for justice for his people. My family and I thank you for coming/passing through our country. My father said he is very proud of you and what your doing. – Ky Ky

Day 228: 9.30pm

[Guest Post] There are no words to describe how incredible and profound tonight was!

Our family had the great privilege of hosting, the phenonmenal Clinton Pryor and his team for dinner tonight. Thank you everyone that came for your warmth, kindness, understanding, open conversation and for the feeling of kinship that was felt by everyone tonight. My mind has been opened to the many discrepancies that exist in our society but more importantly how little effort it takes to overcome our percieved otherness to each other.

Feeling overwhelmed by the love and respect felt tonight and here’s hoping to many more times together!

Clinton is walking for justice from his home in Perth to Canberra and raising awareness for the injustices that exist in Australia including visiting Aboriginal communities and discussing Aboriginal issues, addressing homelessness and the irresponsibility of Government in addressing these issues. His walk is to bring all people in Australia to stand for justice.

We wish you all the very best for the rest of your journey Clinton – you are truly an inspiration!

Please share and follow Clinton’s Walk for Justice! – Appurva

Always believe, have Faith and hope because the better days are not far. My straight is coming back and my sickens is going away because of the healing from my ancients. That i’m getting stronger and tomorrow I should get back into the walk and finish this walk of to Canberra.

Day 197: 6.30pm

I’m just thinking about the most amazing thing that happen on the walk and I got to say it would be the part from Docker River to Uluru where I got to meet the dockey on the road that came out from the Bush. It was Strage that when I left docker river and just walking out from the community onto the road i look up to look down the road and there was this dockey just standing there in the middle of the road looking at me.

But what amaze me was when I was walking out from Docker River when the dockey was standing in the middle of the road The sun was just rising half way over the hill and it shine a little light on the dockey when it was standing there It feel like my ancients wanted me to ride the dockey into Uluru.

But I decided not to ride the dockey and told the spirit of the land and old people I must do this journey on foot If I choice the dockey I be riding a dockey onto Canberra and that be something to see But Im happy that I made the choice to walk into uluru and the rest of the way to Canberra.

[Admin Luke] Hi supporters, Clinton and the team are still very much in need of your financial support to keep the walk going.

It’s been a really tough couple of months for the team ever since leaving Uluru with car problems, heatwave after heatwave, floods and all sorts.

That’s made it a really tough slog and has been taking a toll, especially with continual financial stress, needing to fundraise all the time and all while worrying about the car.

But the team are almost through the hardest part now. Can you help lift a load off their shoulders by sharing and donating?

Every dollar will help reduce the stress AND keep the team going.
