Hundreds march through Rockhampton streets for NAIDOC week

HUNDREDS of Rockhampton residents gathered this morning at the Town Hall to prepare for what organisers are calling the city's biggest NAIDOC march.

Traditional dancers got marchers in the mood with a native dance, before the procession made its way along East St, across the Fitzroy Bridge and then onto the Rockhampton Cricket Ground.

People in the crowd aired their thoughts on what NAIDOC week meant to them.

The Morning Bulletin recorded comments from a traditional dancer and also the Aurizon candidate for NAIDOC person of the year, Laurie Anno.
