The award-winning Cultural Centre was designed collaboratively with the Traditional Owners of Gariwerd by renowned architect, Greg Burgess, to celebrate connection to Country.

In 2006, the park visitor information building was added, which now houses the Grampians park information counter, a café and gift shop. It is a one-stop shop for park information and a must-see for people visiting the Grampians.

Parks Victoria has temporarily taken over the management of Brambuk: The National Park and Cultural Centre in association with Gariwerd Traditional Owner corporations, Barengi Gadjin Land Council, Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and Eastern Maar Aboriginal Corporation.

The first stage of Brambuk’s re-opening has commenced, with the precinct’s park visitor information building reopened. Services include: latest park information and expert advice on walks and things to do in Grampians National Park, map sales, activity brochures, campground bookings, permits, gift and souvenirs, interpretive displays, as well as scheduled holiday activities for kids through the Junior Rangers program.

See how Traditional Owners, community members and visitors connected, shared stories, and celebrated creativity on Country through art and music at the Brambuk Winter Series.

Cultural centre

Further assessments and maintenance works for the Cultural Centre are still underway, so the building remains temporarily closed. Alternative options for delivering cultural experiences for visitors are currently being investigated.

In great news for Brambuk and the region, the Victorian Government Budget 2020–21 has allocated $5.8 million to upgrade buildings, refresh activity spaces, and develop new long term environmental and cultural programs at the precinct. Further details about these upgrades will be provided by Parks Victoria and the Gariwerd Traditional Owner corporations in due course.
