Residents flocked to South Hedland Town Square last weekend for the Reconciliation Week Concert.

To celebrate the important week in Australian history, the Town of Port Hedland put on a family-friendly concert in South Hedland.

With performances by Aboriginal artists and groups, including Bradley Hall and The Family Shoveller Band, fans flocked to the stage to bust a move to tunes old and new.

To start the night, Town of Port Hedland Mayor Camilo Blanco said the town was proud to be able to have an event at which all members of the community could come together to celebrate the milestones of reconciliation.

“This year’s Reconciliation Week has a theme of ‘let’s take the next step’, and the Town is committed to taking that next step forward alongside the first Australians,” he said. “Reconciliation will create a stronger community today for our future generations.”
