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.
Our centre in Newcastle has a range of displays and information including:
Didgeridoos, battle axes, spears, woomeras (spear thrower), grinding stones, digging sticks, coolomons, clapsticks, carvings and emu eggs. Selected artefacts available for purchase.
Miromaa Aboriginal Language & Technology Centre continues to support local and national Aboriginal artists by providing them with exhibition and retail space for their artworks.
We currently have a wide range of beautiful traditional Aboriginal art on display.
Artworks are also available for purchase.
Language maps, language posters and banners featuring "sound printing" technology, books, teaching/learning resources, signs, labels...we have language everywhere in our centre. Come and learn a few words and a sentence or two.
We have a public access library with over 2000 books (including some very old and rare books) and DVD's all focused on Aboriginal culture, language and issues. Perfect for students doing Aboriginal Studies assignments or for those who are just interested in learning about Aboriginal Australia. Come in, grab a spot on the lounge and relax with a good book and a hot cuppa.
Items include old photographs, rare prints and books and sports memorabilia.
This is only a small sample of the world of knowledge, history and culture that we have available to learn in our centre. Come and visit us today!
