Centre Background
​​The Ngutana-Lui Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Studies Centre was established in 1989 by Brisbane Catholic Education in conjunction with the Aboriginal and Islander Catholic Council and the local community.

The Centre is located in the Moreton Region about 15 kilometres south west of Brisbane in the grounds of St Mark's Parish, Inala.

The aims of the Centre are to promote reconciliation, through education and to develop and enhance cultural knowledge, understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The philosophy of the centre is based on a holistic view of creation, recognizing that humanity is part of the environment and not separate to it.

A relaxed, friendly atmosphere was created to express teaching / learning styles, which reflect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, providing opportunities for teachers and students to explore aspects of both traditional and contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander societies.
