Yunggorendi Mande Cultural Gathering Space is GO!


This year Flinders created a cultural gathering space next to Yunggorendi Mande to host intimate cultural ceremonies and gatherings, smoking ceremonies, and learning and teaching activities such as for Open Day, Sorry Day, Reconciliation Week, NAIDOC Week, inbound schooling and Orientation events.  This space will provide a place of well-being and healing, a place to grieve, and a space that brings Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities together.
