Dharriwaa Elders Group Exhibition Centre

Overview

The Dharriwaa Elders Group is an integral part of the Walgett community. They also manage and curate the Dharriwaa Elders Group exhibition centre and have designed a self-guided walking tour track. Exhibitions have included "Memories of Living Outside Walgett" and "Wugan Gaay", a display of wooden items donated to the organisation by the late craftsman Roy Barker, along with photos of historic wooden items from Walgett held by the Australian Museum.

Together with the full set of real-life wooden tools and weapons displayed, this exhibition has provided the community today with a template for continuing this craft.

A Keeping Place, the exhibition centre also houses special items that have been gifted to the DEG or placed under permit with the organisation for safe-keeping
