Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural Centre
Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural Centre information
On your way out to the Blue Mountains take a few hours out in Penrith to visit the Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural Centre , which was opened as an Aboriginal Meeting Place in 1998 to acknowledge the Dharug people as the traditional custodians of the region. The Cultural Museum here showcases the art and stories of the Dharug people as well as the rich diversity of Indigenous peoples throughout Australia. An outdoor amphitheatre plays host to traditional dance performances, where local guides also play the didgeridoo and explain the story of its creation and significance. Cultural tours are offered, and a cafe on site serves bush tucker, so you can scoff that side of roo or wallaby you’ve always wanted.
