WEEK 6 : Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural Experience



The mid-semester break is drawing to a close which means Unimates will be back next week with another weekend event.
Experience the Aboriginal culture with the award-winning tour at Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural and Education Centre. Muru Mittigar, which in the Aboriginal Darug language means “Pathway to Friends” provides the key ingredients to learn more about the traditional inhabitants of this great land. The tour includes a cultural talk and also activities for you to participate in, learn how to throw a boomerang. There will also be a Bush Tucker walk where you will be introduced to plants, fruits and other items found in the bush which Aboriginal people traditionally used as food and medicine.

However, if it rains we will be under the Biochemistry footbridge. The two places are right next to each other so it shouldn’t be difficult to find us on the day!

So come and enjoy some yummy cakes and snacks with us or get your daily fill of coffee or tea between classes, while you meet up with new and old friends from Unimates.

From this semster, cakes and teas are sponsored by Yuga Cafe.
