Bunjilaka is a word derived from two local Aboriginal languages meaning ‘creation place’ and is the name of the Melbourne Museum’s Aboriginal Centre. The Centre’s aim is to enable Victoria’s indigenous communities to express their history themselves. Bunjilaka’s significant collection of Aboriginal cultural heritage items is complemented by a series of performance, exhibition and meeting spaces including a native garden area. Even the Welcome (Wominjeka) Desk serves an important function as part of the customary greeting ritual when welcoming visitors to country.
