Supporting Constitutional Recognition

At the 2014 LGAQ Annual Conference, all Queensland Councils resolved to support the development a website to provide details about the upcoming referendum on constitutional recognition of Australia’s first peoples.  

In 2014, the Prime Minister suggested that the date for the referendum should be 27 May, 2017 to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum.

As a local government serving 17 unique communities rich in history and diverse in culture, we are committed to communicating with and supporting all Isaac residents. The following link offers access to a resource with information both for and against the referendum on constitutional recognition.

We encourage residents to visit the Recognise Australia’s First Peoples website for more information.
