On Tuesday 18 March, the Aboriginal Interpretive playspace - Yirran muru was opened. Yirran muru, which translates to ‘many pathways’ in the local Dharawal language, has been designed to take people of all ages on a cultural journey following the seasonal movements of local Aboriginal people.
Located in the native gardens behind the Shellharbour Civic Centre, the playspace is the first of its kind in the area. It features multiple interactive elements including key Illawarra landmarks, signage with creation stories, bush tucker and a language wheel. The Aboriginal Interpretive Playspace is an exciting educational and play experience, and we invite the community to come visit this unique new addition to our city.
We could all use some extra time to connect with our creative self. So, why not join us for our Civic Centre Creative Series! Unwind, learn some fun new skills, get a little messy (or a lot) and have a laugh! Be welcomed by our friendly and experienced workshop facilitators and create something special across a range of mediums, from food, blooms, to clay!
The Civic Centre has venues to suit many events, and has been priced competitively to ensure access for community groups and commercial entities, government and non-government agencies, as well as individuals.
