Aurukun makes a splash

A $2.5 million Queensland Government investment in Aurukun in Far North Queensland has helped transform a community aspiration into reality. On 28 June 2018, local council, school students and community opened the Aak Muunchanak Splash Park, which in traditional language means a place of refreshment.
