Every Sunday, Murrundindi (Wurundjeri Elder), is here to share the cultural stories of his land.

Ever wondered which Indigenous plant has leaves that can be used as soap? Or maybe you want to know what makes a Boomerang come back? Perhaps you’d like to hear a local Dreaming Story about how the Lyrebird came to speak in the language of many other animals?

Learn a little language as Murrundindi welcomes you onto Country with a friendly Wominjeka; listen to the sounds of the didgeridoo; stop to have a yarn; hear local stories, and be amazed at his mastery making that Boomerang really fly!

You can meet Murrundindi every Sunday, or every day except Saturday in the school holidays and on public holidays.
