Ngurrala Aboriginal Corporation
Ngurrala is approximately mid-way between Coffs Harbour & Kempsey on the Mid North Coast of NSW in the beautiful Nambucca valley. For those community organisations and groups that like to get away from the bustle of towns and its noise levels, this is the ideal place for you. It is centered in the middle of the three major townships of the Nambucca valley, only (5) minutes travel from Macksville and (10) minutes from Nambucca Heads & Bowraville in a peaceful bushland setting.
Ngurrala Aboriginal Corporation was formed in 1994, following years of work from the Nambucca Valley Koorie Network Committee. They developed and submitted for a Community Development Employment Project (CDEP) proposal to the former Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) and was successful with their application. Ngurrala Aboriginal Corporation officially opened for business on the 15th of April 1996. After purchasing the former "Palm World" site at 7 Wirrimibi Road at Newee Creek, situated on a two & half hectare propertyand had it's first intake of CDEP participants on the 6th of May 1996. Unfortunatley this program ceased on the 30th June 2008.
