The Drumley Walk Reformatted

In 2014, The Drumley Walk has been reformatted to focus on connecting local school students with Aboriginal stories and language from their area.


Following a very successful trial in Beaudesert in 2013, discussions with the Department of Education, Training and Employment have led to a partnership agreement with champion schools across South East Queensland to greatly increase the reach of this iconic event. This year the trial will see more than 1000 students participate over three days.


Non-school participants are welcome to join The Drumley Walk at Beaudesert on Wednesday 6th August, with a cultural show at The Centre from 12.00 - 12.45pm.


Contact Yugambeh Museum on 3807 6155 or [email protected] to register as a non-school participant.


The Drumley Showcase Postponed

The Drumley Showcase, originally scheduled for the evening of Tuesday 5th August, has been postponed.


It will now be a centrepiece of The Drumley Walk 10 year anniversary celebrations in 2015.


The 2015 event will feature performances involving Bangarra's David Page, with a focus on local stories told by local people.


Meanwhile, this year, guests are welcome to attend a smaller version of Showcase at 12 noon, Wednesday 6th August at The Centre, Beaudesert, featuring graduates from the Bangarra Dance Company's Rekindling program, Dreamworld Corroboree's cultural performers and local stories.

Football legend Steve Walters accepted an invite from Beaudesert High School student Toni Currie and joined The Drumley Walk for 2011.


Walters is a mentor at the school, where he attends as part of the FOGs program (Former Origin Greats).


“He’s great,” said Toni.

“We love the FOGs program and Steve is a really nice guy. It was really great to show him our event, in our town.”


Walters told the crowd at the start that he walked in honour of his father, who passed away last year.


Steve praised the organisers and also pledged the FOGs program would be happy to align with it in the future.


“The walk is a great event and it is great to see the next generation getting in and having a go,” he said.
