Narana’s vision is to promote reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people by developing a better understanding of culture through connection. Narana is nestled amongst native trees, walkways and gardens, through your exploration of the beautiful grounds you experience an introduction to Aboriginal culture.

Narana’s cultural display, performance building, art gallery and native gardens provide the perfect learning environment. On this guided tour many key elements of local Aboriginal culture are illuminated. Connection to country is explained, you will see Aboriginal artworks and cultural artefacts, enjoy a guided garden walk where you will interact with Australian native animals and taste bush tucker.
