THE KOORIE HERITAGE TRUST IS BOTH MOVING ON UP! AND MOVING ON OUT TO THE GROUND AND TOP FLOORS OF THE YARRA BUILDING AT FEDERATION SQUARE.
WE WILL BE CLOSING OUR DOORS AT THE END OF MAY 2015 TO PACK AND MOVE AND WILL OPEN IN OUR NEW HOME AT THE END OF JULY 2015.
To live in a society where Aboriginal culture and history are a fundamental part of Victorian life.
To promote, support and celebrate the continuing journey of the Aboriginal people of South Eastern Australia.

The clasped black and white hands in our logo reflect our belief that, through education and promotion, we can raise awareness and appreciation of the cultural diversity of Koorie culture and work towards the broader goal of reconciliation for all Australians.
We offer a range of programs and services including the only public collection in Victoria dedicated solely to Koorie art and culture comprising artefacts, pictures and photographs as well as an Oral History Program and a Reference Library; cross cultural awareness training and tours; exhibitions; a Koorie Family History Service; and a retail shop.
Watch an introductory video about the Trust:
