Worimi! – Hello (Darug)

  
This Service is located on land that traditionally was home to the Mulgoa people, who spoke the Darug language. The Mulgoa people lived a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. We encourage educators to learn more about the traditional land and people that they live and work on, as they can then share this knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal culture within their Service.
