Trangie Wungunja Cultural Centre

Overview

The Wungunja Cultural Centre opened in July 2017 after restorations to an old Scout Hall building took place, transforming it close to its original condition when built in 1936.

A unique Centre that holds a large collection of Aboriginal artefacts that have been sourced mostly from Central West NSW. The collection boasts two large carved burial trees that once stood on the Macquarie River close to Trangie. These trees have been housed at the Australian Museum in Sydney since the mid 1960's and have been bought back to their country to stand in the Cultural Centre.

The artefact collection displays prime examples of Aboriginal tools which include ochre in a wide range of colours, axes, boomerangs, dishes, saws, scrapers, rubbing stones and anvil stones. This centre also holds a large collection of family histories of the Aboriginal families originating from Dandaloo on the Bogan river and Gin Gin on the Macquarie river.

Visitors and groups including school groups are welcomed to visit the Wungunja Cultural Centre where catering can be arranged for morning and afternoon teas and lunch.

Wungunja Cultural Centre is easily accessible with parking close to the building, with facilities that allow wheelchair access.
