Knowledge Centre

 

Australian Aboriginal culture is one of the oldest living cultures in the world that dates back at least 60,000 years. People today are discovering the pleasure and importance of learning about this culture and lifestyle and what better way to learn than to come and see it for yourself.

We invite everyone to visit our centre and see the displays and learn a bit about traditional Aboriginal culture and language.

We especially encourage visitors from overseas to visit us; take home your own lil piece of Australia.
