Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre
Bunjilaka is the Aboriginal Centre at Melbourne Museum, a venue of Museum Victoria.
It was developed to empower Aboriginal people to interpret their own cultural heritage for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
The name Bunjilaka is derived from the word 'Bunjil' (Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung language). 'Bunjil' was a significant Creation Ancestor for most of Victoria's Aboriginal language groups; 'Aka' means land or place. The name was selected after consultation with the local Aboriginal people from the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung groups, who are the traditional owners of Melbourne. The words evoke the sense of a 'creation place'.
Birrarung is a Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung word for the Yarra River. The Birrarung runs through the heart of Melbourne, and in Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre our Birrarung Gallery is the magnificent river-inspired space dedicated to Aboriginal art from South Eastern Australia.
Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre is located at Melbourne Museum.
