Welcome to Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre

A place of learning, encouragement and support.

On behalf of our staff, colleagues, friends and supporters, welcome to Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre and Murdoch University.

We acknowledge the Wadjuk people of the Noongar nation as the Traditional Custodians of this country and its waters and that Murdoch University stands on Noongar Country. We pay our respects to Noongar Elders past and present, and acknowledge their wisdom and advice in our teaching and cultural knowledge activities.

First established in 1988 as the Aboriginal Education Unit for Murdoch University, the Centre was named the Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre by respected Elder Ralph Winmar. Kulbardi, pronounced Kool-bar-dee, is the Noongar word for magpie.

The Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre has a vital role in assisting the University to meet its commitment to the education of Indigenous people. We facilitate support for Indigenous students studying on Murdoch University's three campuses (South Street, Rockingham and Mandurah) in addition to offering a pathway to university study.
