Our History

Reconciliation Tasmania (RT) was launched at Macquarie Point in Hobart by the Tasmanian Governor and Premier on 9th August 2017 – the UN’s Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. Since then, an RT Board of 12 Tasmanians has been appointed and meets regularly to update and implement RT’s operational plan.

The membership of the RT Board of 12 Tasmanian’s comprises 6 Tasmanian Aboriginals and 6 non-Aboriginal members and is spread with representation from the North, North West and Southern regions of Tasmania.

The RT Board is co-chaired by Fiona Hughes and Bill Lawson.

Three regional RT groups have been established in the North, North West and South of Tasmania through which RT’s operational plan is executed.
