Schools Program

Birrarung Wilam (River Camp) Walk

The Birrarung Wilam Walk takes you through Federation Square and down to the Birrarung Wilam (Common Ground) Aboriginal art installations experiencing the Aboriginal history of the Birrarung Marr (Beside the river of mists) and Aboriginal Peoples of the Kulin Nation.

With one of our friendly Koorie guides, you will learn how the land on which Melbourne is located has changed over time and learn the significance of the Birrarung Wilam to the local Kulin peoples. You will gain a deeper and more meaningful understanding of this incredible location, an important gathering place for the Kulin Nation and one of Melbourne’s most popular meeting hubs.

Schools Curriculum and Professional Development Support

Our Schools Curriculum Support program is designed to support you in embedding cross-cultural priorities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History, Country and Culture in your school. Working together, we can develop an Indigenous Perspective in the Australian Curriculum program to suit your particular needs.

In partnership, we are also happy to develop a PD for Teachers program on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cross curriculum priority inclusion to suit the particular needs of your school. Please contact us for further information on how we can assist you in developing such a program.
