What are the best ways for non-Indigenous people to support reconciliation and recognition? How can the education system do more to involve Indigenous culture in the classroom? These are some of the questions that will be explored in the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum’s latest ground-breaking exhibition and online experience.

Learn from local Wurundjeri Elders as well as respected journalist and Wiradjuri man, Stan Grant, about the significant Indigenous cultural heritage in Yarra Ranges. This celebration of Aboriginal heritage, exploring firestick knowledge and cultural ceremonies, is an opportunity to embrace and share this culture together.

Presented online and at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum, the exhibition Our Country, Our Future: Nourishing the Conversation is an abridged re-telling of the Yarra Ranges Council Reconciliation Week event Our Country, Our Future: Igniting a Shared Responsibility. Aimed at continuing and nourishing the conversation, this exhibition encourages the community to engage and ask questions about the culture and knowledge of First Australians in the Yarra Ranges.

View the exhibition, ask questions and share your experiences. This is an opportunity to participate in the conversation and look to our shared future.

While you are at the museum, take the opportunity to hear the secrets hidden behind the walls of the impressive museum building, discover treasures from our permanent collection in the Connections Gallery, or step back in time with the exhibition, Vantage Point showcasing historical photos of Yarra Ranges’ landscapes.

When you book your Museum Visit, you will also have access to these wonderful experiences.
