QLD YWP Amazing Race 2019

QLD YWP Amazing Race 2019
Register now for the annual QLD YWP Amazing Race! The theme of the 2019 Amazing Race is ‘Dandiiri Maiwar’.

‘Dandiiri Maiwar’ (pronounced “dun deeree may war”) roughly translates as “meet at the river”.

It combines two words commonly used by local Aboriginal groups: ‘dandiiri’ meaning “to meet” and ‘maiwar’, the traditional word used to refer to the waterway now known as the Brisbane River. The name gives us a sense of purpose and place as well expressing the significance of water and waterways to all peoples, past, present and future.
