The Centre protects, celebrates, and shares the culture of the Nyoongar people and highlights land management practices that draw upon the knowledge of the land’s traditional custodians. 

The centre boasts an interpretive space detailing the 6 seasons and aboriginal history in Northam and the Ballardong Region, a multitude of cultural & environmental tours & workshops, numerous cultural events, as well as rooms to hire and cross-cultural training.

The Shire of Northam Aboriginal Advisory Group (AAG) has provided cultural guidance to the Shire of Northam with the development and operation of the BKB Centre and will continue to support the operation of the BKB Centre, to ensure that a focus on culture is appropriately maintained and that the BKB Centre continues to represent and connect with the Aboriginal community.
