Dja Dja Wurrung celebrated in Lalgambuk visitor site

Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation (DJAARA), officially opened the upgraded visitor site at Lalgambuk (Mount Franklin) in a joint celebration with Parks Victoria today.

DJAARA Board Chair Trent Nelson said, ‘We are embedding Dja Dja Wurrung knowledge, language and culture back into the landscape at Lalgambuk, which is a very significant place for Djaara (Dja Dja Wurrung People).’

The visitor site features Dja Dja Wurrung-designed facilities, including a shelter, furniture and signage, which we have built and installed through DJAARA’s enterprise DJANDAK.
