The Dharnya Centre
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.
The Yorta Yorta Indigenous Training Centre, also known as Yenbena is an initiative of the Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation, the Australian National Training Authority and the Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated. It has been in operation since March 2001 to provide
targeted and culturally appropriate training to Indigenous young people. Yenbena is located on Yorta Yorta traditional lands situated in Barmah.In order to provide training, Yenbena has been registered as a Registered Training Organisation with the State Training Board of Victoria.The Yenbena Indigenous Training Centre provides an example of best practice in relation to increased
and targeted employment and training outcomes for Indigenous people, community participation and capacity-building.
