The Wonnarua Nation Aboriginal Corporation was established in 1999 and represents the Wonnarua people. It focuses on nurturing the history and culture of the Wonnarua Nation, improving the health and education of its members and managing investments to sustain the Corporation’s work.
The Wonnarua people are traditional landowners in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales. The Corporation is currently developing a map to define the traditional boundaries of Wonnarua country, based on written and oral historical records.
The Directors have achieved significant milestones since the Corporation was returned to the WNAC board after a period of administration. As they rebuild the Corporation they are building a bright future for the Wonnarua people.
The Wonnarua Nation Aboriginal Corporation engage in a wide number of projects to assist the Wonnarua People and the rest of the Aboriginal community. For more information, look at some of the pages on our website.
