Welcome to Kirrit Barreet Aboriginal Art and Cultural Centre.
Kirrit Barreet (meaning place of creation) is an art and cultural centre that exhibits high quality local and regional contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art and craft. The centre was established by the Ballarat Aboriginal community as a way to preserve cultural identity and educate non-Indigenous people about both Koorie culture and the local Wathaurong tribe.
Kirrit Barreet is also an education centre. Visitors to the Aboriginal owned and operated centre can enjoy educational tours, cultural talks, an art gallery, profiling Victorian Aboriginal artists and a retail shop stocking a wide variety of predominantly Aboriginal Victorian arts and crafts, including an extensive bookshop and educational resources. Activities such as didgeridoo playing, boomerang painting and throwing are available.
We also have an indigenous plant garden and feature garden.
