Barongarook Farm

Barongarook West, VIC

Barongarook Farm, near Colac in Victoria, is providing a place for local Aboriginal people to strengthen their cultural identity and family and community connection.

The ILSC purchased and granted Barongarook Farm to members of Barongarook Aboriginal Corporation (BAC). The group is also operating a dairy farm to generate income which is used to maintain and pay for the upkeep of the property.

The grant of the property by the ILSC has asssited BAC members and their families to gain access to country and the group has made increasing use of the farm for social and community activities. Cultural events on the property help strengthen community bonds and pass on stories.
