Language Program Partnership Seeing Great Results

31 August, 2020

Since entering into a partnership with the Brewarrina Cultural Museum in March this year, the REDI.E Language Program is seeing fantastic results. 

COVID restrictions haven’t held the staff back. Since borders have opened and tourists began visiting the region again, Brewarrina has seen 70-80 people a day attending the Cultural Museum - where they are given a fully immersive experience. 

The tours are being run by Brad Hardey and Brad Steadman – a Linguist Specialist, who speaks three (3) Traditional languages fluently (Muruwari, Ngiyampaa also known as the Ngemba and Yuwaalaraay, also spelt Ualara). 

The Tours include an exciting insight into Aboriginal history and artefacts, as well as a walking tour of the Brewarrina Fish Traps, with talks on the meaning of the traps, how they are used and how they were engineered.

It has been very busy in Brewarrina, and all COVID – 19 measures are in place and working. 

If you’re looking to learn more about the oldest living culture in the World, pop in and visit the Brewarrina Cultural Museum – Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm, Saturday 8am – 4pm and Sunday 10am – 2pm.
