Come along to Maroondah Federation Estate to view our exhibition on 'bunyips' in collaboration with local Aboriginal communities.

Come and see a uniquely immersive and imagined exhibition celebrating the Bunyip!

‘Too-roo-dun’ is a Boonwurrung word for Bunyip, and ‘Bunyip’ is a word from the Wathawurrung language.

Developed by Baluk Arts, this exhibition has brought together seven Victorian Aboriginal communities: Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place, Winja Ulupna Womens Recovery Centre, Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association, Willum Warrain Aboriginal Gathering Place, Casey Yarn & Art Group and Bunjilwarra Koori Youth Alcohol and Drug Healing Service, to create fantastic life-size sculptures inspired by the stories that surround the Bunyip.

Nine re-imagined Bunyips and their stories and soundscapes will be on display, each influenced by contemporary interpretations of ancestral stories surrounding mythological beasts.
