Revealing the history of Aboriginal people.

This exhibition celebrates the diversity of a culture that has withstood the impact of colonisation for nearly two hundred years.

It reveals a history of Victoria that has been hidden, even denied, for over 170 years.

Koori Voices tells the stories of Aboriginal people since the arrival of the British in the 1830s. It also looks at the impact of colonisation and the way in which Aboriginal people have struggled to maintain their culture.

Some stories speak of brutality, oppression and hardship. Other stories recall the struggles and joys of daily life.

This exhibition will close on Friday 24 February for exhibition redevelopment building works. An exciting new exhibition is coming to Bunjilaka in 2013.
