Dja Dja Wurrung
For thousands of years, the Bendigo region has been the home of the Dja Dja Wurrung People. For them, Country is more than just the landscape – it is a living entity which holds the stories of creation and histories that cannot be erased.
Join us for a journey of discovery into the unique and fascinating traditions of the Dja Dja Wurrung and hear a story more than 40,000 years in the making.
This tram has been adorned inside and out with striking Aboriginal artworks created by emerging Dja Dja Wurrung artist, Natasha Carter. A special commentary has been written and narrated by the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal staff and members and was produced by prominent musician and composer David Bridie.
