The Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre at South Tweed Heads adjoins the beautiful Ukerebagh Nature Reserve. It is our mission to preserve and protect this area’s significant cultural heritage while also providing a facility for those who want to learn about and explore the history and native coastal bushland environment.

Take a journey through time and learn about the Traditional Custodians of this area. Now considered to be one of Australia’s most beautiful National Parks, take a stroll along the Tweed River, cutting through bushland and mangroves to discover the flora, fauna, bush tucker and culture of the Minjungbal people. Stop by the authentic Bora Ring, a sacred ceremonial site still used just 100 years ago. Learn about the history of the region and local Aboriginal people from detailed interactive museum exhibits.

The scenic views are captivating, the air is fresh and you will feel at one with nature on our Country. Enjoy your picnic or BBQ lunch in this tranquil setting using our available BBQ facilities. Light refreshments are available on site.

Very interesting easy 1 km loop walk , interesting informative stops and a boardwalk walk over the water. Take insect repellent as the mosquitoes were wicked this time of the year.

We missed the opportunity to have a guided tour, but the signs and the Ukerebagh Nature Reserve next to the Center provide an informative and beautiful walk. If you come early the birdsong is delightful. The highlight of the walk is the Bora Ring - a sacred site that is a privilege to be able to see. Friendly and helpful team.

The walking track goes through 3 types of forest and an historical Aboriginal meeting place. The museum is well worth a visit, with photos, artifacts and displays really enabling you to picture daily life here before colonisation.
