Awabakal Environmental Education Centre

Awabakal EEC is located adjacent to Awabakal Nature Reserve at Dudley. Awabakal EEC opened in 1976 and is one of the oldest centres operating in NSW. The centre provides a wide range of fieldwork resources and programs that allow students to investigate a range of ecosystems first- hand. Students can investigate coastal heath, open forest, perched lagoons, remnant littoral rainforest and rock platforms. Awabakal EEC's excursion programs cover wet and dry environments and rainforests, coastal ecosystems, perched lagoons and creeks, Aboriginal culture and land use, sustainable management of ecosystems, comparative studies of ecosystems and human impacts on the environment. Awabakal has a rich Aboriginal heritage and strong historical and cultural links for the local Aboriginal community. Awabakal EEC offers a range of Aboriginal topics (including whole- school cultural days that are well used by schools) focussing on traditional and contemporary culture and relationship to the land. Approximately 50% of all Awabakal bookings are focused on Aboriginal Culture. Awabakal EEC is administered by Wetlands Environmental Education Centre.
