OUR HISTORY, OUR PEOPLE
In the beginning…
The Burraja Aboriginal Cultural and Environmental Discovery Centre was first established in 2002, with set up funding from the Ian Potter Foundation.
Supported by the Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) and in partnership with parklands Albury Wodonga, Burraja was set up to train Aboriginal people in traditional knowledge skills and tourism.
The Burraja Aboriginal cultural and environmental discovery centre is supported by an executive committee which is working toward Burraja becoming an established full time business/enterprise.
Burraja is busy running programs for local schools in the Albury Wodonga area as well as Cultural knowledge programs for landcare, local government agencies and private business that want to learn more about the local Aboriginal heritage.
The BurrajaCultural Centre is currently supported by Gateway Health, the Department of Justice Victoria, Wodonga Council and Wodonga TAFE.
