Bunjil Place

Have you heard of this new Community hub of activity and life? Book in for 'Of This Earth' the first Saturday in May, it is the perfect opportunity to discover it.

The architecture of Bunjil Place references Aboriginal creation myths. It sweeps in the shape of The Spirit Bunjil - a wedge-tailed eagle told to have carved man from clay. It creates light and a community space that is steeped in cultural meaning. It is the perfect location for an event which explores how to create a sustainable ecological future through expanding our imagination.

The Bunjil Place roof floats. This conveys the idea of Bunjil's wings protecting his creation. The event inspires us to do the same. 'Of this Earth' is a multifaceted gathering which explores how we might value the wonder of our existence in this country and on this planet. This Is how we can ensure its future.
