Aboriginal centre opens on Monday

Aboriginal Art Directory | 24.08.09

If you think you have seen everything there is to see in Wollongong, think again.
There is now a way to see the magnificent coastline and escarpment the way Dharwal people saw it more than 200 years ago.

It is also an experience to go back in time to hear how Dharwal people lit fires along the Illawarra coastline to tell each other about a strange object moving up the coast, which later turned out to be Captain Cook's ship the Endeavour.

It has been made possible using the latest technology in three interactive shows in a theatre at the new Jumbulla Aboriginal Discovery Centre, at the new Southern Gateway Centre.

Jumbulla will start trading as soon as the metal fencing comes down on Monday.

Tourism NSW chairman Les Cassar described it as an attraction that would help Wollongong lead Australia.
