Celebrating our 11th annual Koorie Lunch

Wandarra Group

Published October 16 2023

On October 9th, Merri Health’s carer services honoured First Nations carers with our 11th annual Koorie Lunch!

Over 40 attendees gathered for the special event at the Lynda Blundell Community Centre to enjoy good food, music and companionship.

The yearly Carers Week event is dedicated to acknowledging and celebrated the remarkable contributions of First Nations carers to our nation.

Among the crowd were members from the Wandarra group, a local aboriginal community organisation based in Broadmeadows. Merri Health have been strong supporters of Wandarra for over a decade, and the group has been instrumental in ensuring that the yearly Koorie Lunch is a resounding success.

Attendees were treated to a buffet-style lunch, speeches from carers and Merri Health staff, before taking to the dance floor for an amazing live performance from The Stray Blacks!

A huge thank you to the Wandarra group and everyone who helped put together a fantastic day!

Supporting First Nations carers is incredibly important to our organisation, and we look forward to coming back next year!
