GDC Awarded a Regional Economic Grant

We have some very, very exciting news!

The Gravity Discovery Centre has been awarded a $190,000 Regional Economic Grant to develop Indigenous style accomodation, called Mia Mias, on site at the GDC! The grant was announced by Alannah MacTiernan, Minister for Regional Development, Agriculture and Food.

There are seven Mia Mias planned and they will be laid out in the pattern of the Yogolarang (also known as the Pleiades or seven sisters). The accomodation has been designed in collaboration with Indigenous Elder, Dr Noel Nannup and will be able to house guests and school groups who visit the centre.

We’re very excited about this venture and can’t wait to embark on this journey.
