Proposed Renaming of Port Hedland's Leap Park (Closed)

In accordance with Town of Port Hedland policy 12/010 Naming of Roads & Places, the Town shall notify the community and seek feedback on proposed name changes to public parks in the LGA.

At the request of Hedland Aboriginal Strong Leaders, it is proposed to rename Port Hedland's Leap Park to Strike Park, to recognise the significance of the site during the 1946 strike for fair wages and working conditions for Aboriginal pastoral workers.

This strike is regarded as one of the longest industrial strikes in Australia, and a landmark in Aboriginal Australians fighting for their human rights, cultural rights and Native Title.
