Monash Reconciliation Group (MRG)

MRG is a community group working towards the understanding of Aboriginal culture and awareness in the City of Monash, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Meetings are generally on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm at The Highway Gallery in Mount Waverley.  Please email or phone to confirm if you like to attend as the venue will change later in 2018 due to the planned closure of The Highway Gallery by the City of Monash.
