For a unique insight into Aboriginal culture, you can’t miss Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre. It’s a popular destination for school excursions and perfect for those looking to learn about local Aboriginal culture.

Run by the area’s Aboriginal community, it’s a popular meeting place for Goori people and other Aboriginal peoples. You’ll find museum exhibits, informative videos, Aboriginal art, and you may even be lucky to see traditional dance and song on the outdoor performance area.

Aboriginal tour guides offer tours through the museum and site, telling you about its relics, plants and animals. Hear how Aboriginal life was when this area was an untouched paradise of natural forest and mangroves, before learning about the cultural significance of Bora Ring, which you can see on Walk on Water walking track.

Pack a picnic, or cook up a storm on the barbecue, and enjoy a relaxing afternoon under the trees while you immerse yourself in local culture.
