The Wiradjuri Condobolin Corporation (WCC) was established in 2003 to implement the provisions of the Ancillary Deed on behalf of Native Title Party, and to create a better quality of life for the people of the Wiradjuri Condobolin community.
This is being achieved by self determination and empowerment of our community; through economic, social and cultural development; education, employment, sporting, vocational and skills development.
By caring for country and uniting and healing our community, we are forging a New Beginning!
Known as the people of the three rivers, the Wiradjuri people have inhabited modern-day New South Wales, Australia for at least 40,000 years. At the time of European colonization, there were an estimated 3,000 Wiradjuri living in the region, representing the largest cultural footprint in the state. Their country extends from the Great Dividing Range in the east, and is bordered by the Macquarie, Lachlan and Murrumbidgee rivers. The Wiradjuri nation is the largest cultural footprint in NSW and second largest geographically in Australia.
The Wiradjuri people were a hunter-gatherer society, made up of small clans or family groups whose movements followed seasonal food gathering and ritual patterns.
Today, major Wiradjuri populations can be found in the New South Wales towns of Condobolin, Peak Hill, Narrandera and Griffith and throughout larger regional areas such as Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Lithgow, down to Wagga Wagga in the south.
Condobolin is the home of the Kalarie people, lower Lachlan region, and is considered by other Wiradjuri communities to be the heart beat of the Wiradjuri nation.
