One of the most popular events at the Shoalhaven NAIDOC Family Fun Day at the Nowra Showground on Wednesday was the annual Koori Cook Off.

Four teams, representing the NSW Police Shoalhaven Local Area Command, Aunty Jean’s Chronic Care Program, Shoalhaven Jarmbies, the local Aboriginal men’s group and Waminda took part in the third annual challenge.
