Award Citation: Wunggurrwil Dhurrung – “An Aboriginal Place in Aboriginal Hands” – is a place of regenerative processes, culture and healing of Country and of community. This free-flowing, grounded design of naturally connected spaces shows no need for direction, other than intuition. Guided by an understanding of the co-existence between people and Country, the sacredness of water, and a need to reclaim place as integral to identity, Wunggurrwil Dhurrung is a wonderful outcome. As a community heart, it is alive, breathing and drinking, as we all are, and it is recognized as a beautiful example of cultural sustainability.
