Located centrally in the Murray River region, you’ll find the Yarkuwa Indigenous Knowledge Centre Aboriginal Corporation
in Deniliquin. As a hub for the exploration and preservation of Indigenous culture, the knowledge centre is peppered with displays of culture born on Wamba Wamba and Perrepa Perrepa country. Stop in to learn Wamba Wamba language on their interactive displays, view original tools, baskets and other cultural artifacts, and discover the important role weaving plays in the mid-Murray region.
The centre itself holds multiple displays of artifacts and galleries stocked with the works of local artists, giving you an insight into the evolution of art and culture over time, seen in the historic crafted pieces to modern-day artwork.
For a trip outdoors, soak up some vitamin D and learn about the land on a Cultural Knowledge Tour, where you’ll be able to walk through the Island Sanctuary and Deniliquin Forest, accompanied by one of the centre’s guides. While you may start your tour as a tourist, you’ll return an expert on indigenous food, medicinal plants and local stories.
