Time Out Says

Discover the stories and survival of Victoria's First Nations communities

Wominjeka! Bunjilaka is a permanent exhibition at Melbourne Museum dedicated to representing the Koorie experience. The exhibition takes its name from the Bunjil, the ancestral wedge-tailed eagle and creator of the Indigenous people of south-east Australia. 

Co-curated by First Nations people, Bunjilaka has three main spaces: Birrarung Gallery, Millari Garden and Kalaya performance space. Three different shows by contemporary Koorie artists are shown in Birrarung Gallery each year, while Millari Garden grows plants significant to Victoria's first peoples (it's also where you can watch eels be fed every day at 1.45pm). 
Visitors to Bunjilaka will discover the stories and vibrant culture of Victoria's first nation peoples through art and performance. Permanent shows include First Peoples (the history, culture, achievements and survival of Victoria's Indigenous people) and Wurreka (a zinc wall etching by artist Judy Watson reflecting Indigenous heritage and the landscapes of Victoria).  
Bunjilaka is open every day except Good Friday and Christmas Day. Entry is free with entry to Melbourne Museum.
