Winning partnership with Wellington Gungie Origin

Gungie 2 Break Thru Wellington has had a busy few months in preparation for this year’s Gungie Origin. With the Westhaven Maroons taking out the title at the recent decider, the event was a huge success not only for those participating in the footy games but for the community at large.

The Gungie Origin was established after community members identified the need to promote positivity within the Wellington community. The initiative focused on developing a relationship of trust and respect between NSW Police, Aboriginal community members, Government agencies and Disabilities Services within Wellington, NSW.

The Gungie Origin is far more than three games of footy however, with the emphasis remaining on inclusion and strong leadership within the community.

The Break Thru Wellington team was involved in every stage of the events from initial planning, to promotion, to event support and everything in between.

We’d like to congratulate the Wellington community on the overwhelming success of the Gungie Origin. We’re proud to partner with this great initiative, providing critical support to ensure greater awareness is achieved.
