Nurragingy Reserve Aboriginal Heritage Garden pays tribute to the important Aboriginal history and heritage of this area of Western Sydney. Only opening in 2019, it is still relatively undiscovered – come and see it for yourself!
‘Nurragingy’ commemorates one of the 2 men of the Darug/Dharug tribe who received the first Aboriginal land grant from Governor Macquarie in 1819. The other title holder was Colebee, whose name has been given to the Centre within the Reserve.
You can see a yarning circle, where people can come together to communicate and speak from the heart, decorated pathways and murals that celebrate Aboriginal culture, plantings indigenous to the region as well as large statues of wood and sandstone carvings by local artists.
You’ll discover that Aboriginal history is all around us, particularly significant in the Blacktown region that more than 8,000 Aboriginal people call home. The garden helps preserve and celebrate this history for Blacktown residents and highlights the importance and presence of Aboriginal people in the area.
The garden is close to nearby amenities and other interesting parts of Western Sydney Parklands, including the Chinese Garden, Bush Tucker Gardens and large ponds with local water birds.
It’s located on the corner of Cross Street and Knox Road, Doonside, with car parking nearby. If you’re taking public transport, take the 753 bus from Doonside Station.
