The Bilya Koort Boodja Centre of Nyoongar Culture and Environmental Knowledge is located in the Shire of Northam on the foreshore of the Avon River in Northam's CBD. It was developed as a regional tourist attraction offering an interactive educational experience that recognises the rich Aboriginal and environmental presence in the Avon River region.
The Centre will protect, celebrate and share the culture of the Nyoongar peoples and highlight innovative land management practices that draws upon the knowledge of the land's traditional custodians.
The centre will include an interpretive space, exhibition space, shop/ gallery, venue hire, and will host regular tours & activities. The Centre will also be responsible for assisting with local aboriginal small business development.
