THE cultural diversity of Lowood and the Somerset was celebrated during the town's NAIDOC activities.

Traditional dance and music, bush tucker, damper making and boomerang and didgeridoo craft were just some of the many attractions during the celebrations at Clock Park. It was the first time NAIDOC celebrations have been held in the township.

A number of talented artists from the Somerset community performed, including Toogoolawah-based band Huntsmen.

Somerset council Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the community had embraced the free event.

"The event was fantastic and it was a great to see so many residents showing their support and participating in some of the traditional activities on offer," he said.

"NAIDOC week is all about the community coming together to celebrate as one.''

NAIDOC week is also aimed at increasing recognition and awareness of indigenous culture across Australia.
