Connections: Warrandyte and the Wurrundjeri Woi-wurrung
Warrandyte Historical Society invites visitors to view an exciting new exhibition developed in collaboration with the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation exploring the connection between the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people and Warrandyte - both past and present.
Displayed in the Old Post Office Museum the exhibition tells the story of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung as they lived prior to European settlement and how their lives were changed forever post European settlement.
Warrandyte, 25kms from Melbourne, is a township on the Yarra River or Birrarung (known as the River of Mists). For thousands of years, for the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people, Warrandyte was a place for ceremony, hunting, fishing, gathering bush food, materials for baskets, string, weapons and other necessities.
The display also informs visitors about other Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung story places to visit in Warrandyte.
While at the museum you will also be able to view our other exhibitions which include Warrandyte’s Gold Heritage, its Art history, orcharding and domestic displays.
The museum is open, with free entry, every Saturday and Sunday from 1:30 to 4:30.
