District Dreaming 2019

Friday, June 7, 2019 - 1:32 PM

District Dreaming is a celebration of Indigenous Culture and an acknowledgement of the contributions from both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians to our great game of Australian Rules football. It is also an opportunity to continue reinforcement of positive game environments, provide a history of aboriginal culture, and an opportunity to integrate the community through football.

The carnival is in its eleventh year and was the initiative of the Northern Cobra’s Junior Football Club to acknowledge the indigenous stars that play Australian Rules football and was developed after Jarrod Oakley Nicholls was drafted to Richmond and then subsequently debuted at the annual "Dreamtime at the 'G" game in 2006, where he scored the winning behind.

District Dreaming (formally District Dreamtime) will host matches with teams from within the Northern Conference, Subiaco District and Balga JFC Auskick.
