The Worimi are the traditional owners of the Port Stephens area.
One of the aims of the Tomaree Museum Project is to enhance Worimi cultural identity and protect Worimi cultural heritage.
The Tomaree Museum Association believe that it is important that:
- the Worimi nation tell their story in any Tomaree Museum exhibition and that
- the Tomaree Museum complement the aboriginal story already told by the Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council, the Karuah Local Aboriginal Land Council, numerous individuals and the Worimi Conservation Lands Board.
In time, additional articles about the Worimi people, their connection to country and life before European settlement and after, will be added to the Museum website.
In the meantime we recommend the websites for the Worimi Conservation Lands and the Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council at the links below.
