Dharriwaa Elders Group launched its new exhibition "Tough but Happy Times" during NAIDOC Week 2014. The display presents a history of Walgett's Camping Ground where Aboriginal families lived until the mid 1980s, from the memories of the families themselves, Elders and other historical sources. The exhibition is located in the Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service's Euragai Goondi, a family and children's centre built on the Camping Ground, cnrs of Duff and Arthur Sts Walgett. It complements the exhibition "Memories of Living Outside Walgett" which hangs in the Dharriwaa Elders Centre 47 Fox St Walgett, that documents other historic Walgett Aboriginal settlements at Montkeila Bend, Namoi Riverbank and Gingie. Financial assistance was provided by the Australian Government's Your Community Heritage Program, and WAMS, in 2012.
Opening Hours: Mon - Wed 10am - 1pm. Please remember to sign the Visitors Book so we can prove that people visit!
