The Bundaberg and District NAIDOC committee facilitate family friendly events from the first to the second Sunday of July each year, these events are open to all community members. It is about the desire to share Aboriginal culture with a multi-cultural society.

The Drover's Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson, starring Goa, Gunggari, Wakka Wakka Murri woman Leah Purcell (lead actor, writer, director, co-producer), tells the story of heavily pregnant Molly Johnson, whose husband is away droving cattle, leaving her on their remote Snowy Mountains homestead to care for their four children.
