We use the Ration Shed as a space to tell our stories and we would like visitors to see and experience what life was like for our people living under the Aboriginal Protection Act during the first half of the 20th century, as well as show them the many wonderful aspects of Aboriginal culture and contemporary Cherbourg life.
We hope 2016 is going to be a good year. We have lots of projects and improvements planned for this year. We are adding another historical building to our site – The Domestic Science building. This is where we were sent to be trained as domestic workers and house maids. The building is being restored and renovated and we will be running the HIPPY project there (Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters) and the Many Threads group (a craft initiative) will be housed there.
We also have a vibrant education program in place for schools and visitors. View our Education page to explore what we have to offer. We hope this site will encourage you to come and visit us at the Ration Shed Museum.
Come and visit us and share our dream. I look forward to meeting you,
