Celebrating Family Day in Aurukun was a great opportunity for the community to come together to pay tribute to their strong family cultural values.

It was a time for mums, dads, aunties and uncles to join their children for an afternoon of fun and games.

More than 200 joined in the breakie and treasure hunt at the landing, lunch at the oval, and Kup Murri in the park in the evening, where footy was a hit with the kids.

The slip and slide was the most fun, courtesy of the local fire volunteer fire truck, as children tried to cool down from the Aurukun heat that had come in earlier than hoped.
