Rich Aboriginal history

Journey back in time to where our story begins, with the First Nations people of this region. Discover the enduring legacy of the Wiradjuri people, whose lives were shaped by the mighty Murray River. Here, water runs deep, not just in the landscape, but also in the stories, songs, and traditions that connect them to their country.

Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk

Yindyamarra is more than just a word, it’s a guiding principle in Wiradjuri culture. It means respect – deep respect for each other, for the land, and for every action we take. This slow, mindful approach lies at the heart of the Wiradjuri way of life.

Experience these values firsthand on the scenic Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk. This 5km path (shorter loops available) winds along the mighty Murray River, showcasing fourteen sculptures created by local Indigenous artists. Each piece tells a story and embodies the values of Yindyamarra. Walk, cycle, or simply stroll – the pace is yours.

And delve into the importance of the billabong environment for First Nations communities. Look out for wildlife like platypus, dunnarts, water rats, and rare black-billed spoonbills

Wiradjuri Talkback

In partnership with the local Aboriginal community, the Albury LibraryMuseum has developed a powerful permanent exhibition to highlight Aboriginal heritage and recognise the traditional knowledge and significant artefacts of the Wiradjuri region. 

Among the exhibits are original artefacts such as a preserved canoe scar tree, Riverina bark painting, historic sketches by Tommy McRae, and tools that celebrate local Aboriginal traditions and knowledge.

Kengal Aboriginal Place

Tucked away in quiet farmland, Kengal Aboriginal Place – The Rock Nature Reserve is a small but diverse haven surrounding a remarkable geological giant: The Rock, soaring 364 metres above the plains.

Take the family and find a relaxing picnic spot, or if you’re an avid adventurist, have a go at rock climbing with friends. Hikers looking for something short, vigorous, and with a big scenic view at the finish line will also appreciate the reserve.
