Laura Quinkan Indigenous Dance Festival
Laura is the central meeting place for people from the Cape York and the Torres Islands. As well as being home to Australia's most significant collection of Aboriginal rock art, it hosts another internationally recognised celebration of Aboriginal culture, the Laura Quinkan Dance Festival.
The dance festival grounds at Laura occupy the site of a very old, traditional Bora ground. Its a respected and sacred site. Here, people from about 20 different communities across the Cape and Torres Islands come together to celebrate with music, dance, singing and cultural performances.
Its a place and event where families meet new and old family members and exchange and pass on history.
""This is our place, our country, the country of our ancestors"".
