• Welcome to Munarra

A new Indigenous-led sporting and education precinct for Shepparton

The Munarra Centre for Regional Excellence will build on the strength of the local community to help create future opportunities for the Aboriginal population of the Goulburn Valley.

It will achieve national significance across the cultural, sporting and economic landscape as a learning centre which is Aboriginal-led and has Aboriginal knowledge embedded throughout its design and programs.

Based adjacent to the existing Rumbalara Football & Netball Club (RFNC) facilities, within the Shepparton sporting precinct, the project will include:

  • The Munarra Academy (an evolution of the existing Academy of Sport and Health Education (ASHE), which is to relocate from the town centre)
  • A Munarra administration hub, and
  • An upgrade to the current RFNC facilities

As we enter the community consultation phase of this nationally significant project, we have already been working on outlining what will make this project important for the community.

Vision

Munarra is Aboriginal-led, inspirational and pioneering. It builds on the courage and work of our Elders to create a shared future in which Aboriginal people prosper, by making learning, Aboriginal knowledge and the celebration of culture central to everything it does.

Mission

Munarra will create economic opportunities and career pathways for Aboriginal people through sports, health education and research and the celebration of learning, community and culture.

Guiding Principles

  • Munarra is based on:
  • Trust and respect
  • Self-determination
  • A thriving Culture and Identity
  • Aboriginal values
  • Making Aboriginal knowledge and culture visible
  • Sharing culture and reconciliation
  • Acknowledging true history
  • Creating a sustainable model
  • Knowledge exchange and education
  • Valuing Indigenous knowledge systems
  • Governance

This is how we will operate

The Munarra Centre will be delivered by a consortium of partners, led by the as yet to be formed Munarra Inc. Munarra Inc. will be a not-for-profit incorporation, overseen by an Aboriginal board of directors, and will manage the day to day operations of the Centre. Partners such as the RFNC, Kaiela Institute and University of  Melbourne will all develop and deliver activities on the site. Opportunities to extend this list of partners are currently being explored to add further value to program delivery.
