Community place grant supports new community hub on Darkinjung Land


A Community Place Grant provided by Aboriginal Affairs NSW has enabled Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council to refurbish its premises in Wyong, creating a culturally appropriate Community Hub.

The grant supported Darkinjung to upgrade the space with a new kitchen, interior and exterior paint, furniture and technology including computers, smart boards and Wi-Fi.

“The grant has supported Darkinjung by providing a common area that has been used for meetings and gatherings for culturally appropriate consultation with the Aboriginal community,” said Darkinjung CEO Adina Duncan.

The upgraded space is now used for meetings including functions for Elders to reduce social isolation, training and development courses and hosting the Police Aboriginal Consultative Committee. The space is also used to facilitate Darkinyung language revival classes.

“Darkinjung Community Hub ensures that everyone enjoys long and healthy lives, by ensuring our community maintain a cultural, spiritual, physical, and economic relationship with our land and waters. But most importantly that our community have access to information and services enabling participation in informed decision-making regarding their own lives,” said Adina.

The facility was opened with a special celebration attended by 60 Elders during NAIDOC Week 2023.
