The Dharnya Centre is embedded in an initiative between our Corporation (YYNAC) and Parks Victoria (PV), working towards using Dharnya as a centre for delivering a range of technical and tertiary education programs.
The Dharnya Centre and surrounding Barmah State Forest lie within the traditional territory of the Yorta Yorta people.
The Yorta Yorta have occupied this land for thousands of years.
Operation of the Dharnya Centre has been temporarily suspended while a structural assessment of the centre is undertaken.
The car park and walks leaving from the Dharnya Centre have remained open to the public and the Cultural Officers previously based at the Centre have continued to deliver talks and information sessions to schools and groups upon request.
