Learn more about WILAM BIIK (Home Country) by exploring the content on this page, including videos, music, artwork…and more!

In the Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people, Wilam Biik means Home Country.

How do we see Country?  How do we listen to Country? How do we connect to Country?

You are called to listen deeply with your ears, eyes and hearts– to understand how First People connect with Wilam Biik.

Wilam Biik is the Soil, the Land, the Water, the Air, the Sky and the Animals that reside within. It is the only home we know, and we honour it for its sacred exchange. A home where Custodial rights and responsibilities never left.

An exhibition of cultural consciousness and knowledge, of an unsevered connection between First Peoples of South East Australia and their Country, over thousands of generations.
