Our Sporting Greats: Murri and Ailan athletes in the spotlight

Our Sporting Greats

Some of Queensland’s unsung Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heroes from the sporting world are celebrated in an inspiring showcase of images, memorabilia and digital stories.

Our Sporting Greats shines a spotlight on the lives, dreams and amazing achievements of Rhonda Purcell, Danny Morseu, Willie Prince, the Cherbourg Marching Girls and Uncle Charlie King.

Admired for their talents and determination to succeed, these athletes are also considered champions for their enduring efforts as community advocates.
