Plaque commemorates the historic walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge in 2000.

On May 28, 2000, a milestone was reached in the process of reconciliation between Indigenous and non- Indigenous Australians. 250,000 people turned out for the Walk for Reconciliation across Sydney’s Harbour Bridge, showing the huge amount of support that was behind reconciliation in this country. For five-and-a-half hours, a continuous stream of people made their way across the famous Sydney landmark, making it the largest political demonstration ever to be held in Australian history. The event took place as part of Reconciliation Week, which was dubbed “Corroboree 2000”.
