Yarkuwa is a Traditional Owner organisation based in Deniliquin. It was formed in 2003 to ensure traditional owner knowledge was preserved in future generations.
Yarkuwa has a small museum space at 394 Hay Road, where visitors can access and learn about the Indigenous heritage of the Wamba Wamba and Perrepa Perrepa People. A new, dedicated museum and gallery project is underway at Yarkuwa with exciting plans in motion.
The centre hosts displays and records of:
- Cultural heritage artifacts including stone and wooden tools and woven baskets
- Wamba Wamba Language learning displays
- Local family information
Traditional Aboriginal-based items, foods, clothing and local Indigenous artwork can be purchased from the centre.
