Learn about Aboriginal history and living culture at Sovereign Hill

In partnership with Ballarat’s Traditional Owners - the Wadawurrung people - the Sovereign Hill Museums Association is proud to announce the third annual Gnarrwirring Ngitj/Learning Together Program. Pronounced noworring nict, this year the learning opportunities will extend beyond the confines of National Reconciliation Week - instead they will be offered throughout 2018:


· Join us on National Sorry Day (26 May), for the annual Gnarrwirring Ngitj Lecture (4.00 pm - 5.30 pm, Sovereign Hill’s Victoria Theatre), featuring Professor Ian D. Clark from Federation University.

· Students can take part in a 50min, Victorian Curriculum-aligned education session entitled Aboriginal People on the Goldfields (free with the price of student admission). Use the contact details below to secure a booking for your class.

· Teachers can join Sovereign Hill Education for a professional learning event during Reconciliation Week entitled Our Shared History - cancelled due to low numbers.

· An Evening with Bruce Pascoe (7pm, Wednesday 20 June) - this event is already booked out!

· Wadawurrung Weaving Workshops (Wednesday 5 September - various times).
The general public can click here for tickets, while teachers should contact Sovereign Hill Education (see the details below) to secure a place for your class.

· All visitors are invited to a Corroboree by Full Moon on Friday 23 November (tickets will be available for this event shortly).
