A GROUP of campaigners has gathered outside the Fraser Coast Cultural Centre in an effort to have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people included in the Australian Constitution.

The Recognise campaign hit Hervey Bay on Tuesday as part of a journey to raise awareness around the nation.

Campaigner Dale Agius heaped praise on the Butchulla people's win with native title rights on Fraser Island.

But Mr Agius acknowledged more progress needed to be made to recognise Aboriginal people in the Constitution.

"Let's look at the next step at how we include every people as a nation," he said.

"Get the recognition of Australia's longest living culture more embedded in our national document."

The Recognise campaign kicked off early last year and will continue to the Gold Coast and Brisbane before the end of 2014.

The campaign has drawn support from AFL legend Adam Goodes and Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
