I headed out to Narana Cultural Centre and Cafe Narana on a beautiful autumn day. The sun was out and there was a bit of warmth in the air.
At Cafe Narana I was greeted by the friendly staff, and there was a fire burning, adding a bit of warmth to the dining area. I ordered a "Seven Seeds Coffee" cappucino, a salami and goat's cheese wrap on a bed of rocket, and headed out to dine on the verandah beside the Cafe. The cappucino was amazing, and so was my wrap. One of the staff members bought me out a bottle of water and glass to go with my meal.
Arts and Culture programs are delivered by expert staff, who will tell of the wonders of Indigenous use of land, spirituality, laws, cultural designs, Dreaming stories and much more. Narana offers a large range of cultural programs which are developed to suit the interests, ages and educational needs of all visitors to Narana Creations.
The Narana Cultural Centre is nestled amongst native trees. I met the emus, who are quite friendly and will come up to the fence for a chat. The walkway leads from the car park to the art gallery, the gift shop and to the Café Narana. There is a cultural display and performance building as well as an art gallery and a gift shop where genuine, high quality Aboriginal art and craft, books, bush herbs and spices, didgeridoos and boomerangs are available for purchase.
The friendly Narana staff are always ready to share their extensive knowledge of Aboriginal culture and history. Learn to throw a boomerang, play the didgeridoo or take a guided or self-guided tour through all that Narana has to offer.
Café Narana: The café's chef serves up gourmet dishes and native foods. You can dine indoors or outside on the sunny deck. The menu offers a wide range of culinary delights for breakfast and lunch. You can also learn to gather and process native food and medicinal flora as you stroll through their bush-land garden.
As I wandered out the back of the centre, I found the oval where you can throw boomerangs. I found a few boomerangs that had been thrown by eager young gentlemen a couple of days ago, and the wind had carried them far away from the oval. I had a lovely walk in the bushland at the back of the Narana Cultural Centre. It was very peaceful and it was so nice to find such a lovely bush area to walk in and to just drink in the solitude and quiet.
