The Government of South Australia is committed to the recognition and celebration of Aboriginal cultures as our First Nations people.

Reconciliation is an on-going journey that reminds us that generations of Australians have fought hard for meaningful changes and who support us to all join together and continue to strive for future gains.

Reconciliation gives us the opportunity to learn about shared histories, cultures and achievements and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Reconciliation Tram and Bus

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport and Adelaide Metro are proud to show our support of reconciliation and our ongoing pledge to valuing Aboriginal cultures.

In recognition of this, we have the privilege of showcasing artworks created by students from the Department for Education South Australian Aboriginal Secondary Training Academy (SAASTA) program

from across the state on one of our trams, in collaboration with Power Community Limited.

This striking tram will be operating through the city and along the Glenelg tram line from 22 May to 30 July 2023.

Artworks have also been installed on two City Connector buses which are now in operation around Kaurna Country, Adelaide and North Adelaide.

View the SAASTA students talk about their artworks and share their thoughts on reconciliation.

Artwork Stories

These artworks have been developed as part of a Year 10 SAASTA curriculum task and centred around the National NAIDOC Week theme for 2023, ‘For Our Elders’.

200 students engaged in the task and developed their individual artworks through workshops and collaboration with local aboriginal artists and Elders.
