“Darkinjung Country” today

The exhibition also tells stories of Aboriginal people living and working in “Darkinjung Country” today. “Central Coast” is the fastest growing area of New South Wales. It is also one of the fastest growing Indigenous populations. Some are “relocated” to the area, some choose to move here and some are born here. There are many significant and dynamic Indigenous organisations and people in this community: The Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council (with 700 members), the Eleanor Duncan Medical Centre and Nunyara, Kurriwa Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG). It concludes with present-day cultural regeneration activities – including this exhibition – that seek to build an inclusive sense of place, that recognises a rich and dynamic present-day community based on a rich and dynamic history.
