The Nindeebiya Art & Craft Workshop was opened along with other Aboriginal-controlled services from 1973 onwards. The Workshop became a “local community meeting place where Aboriginal people could gather to practise arts and crafts” (screen printing, enamelling copper jewellery and leather crafts, didgeridoo and boomerang making, and play sports). Nindeebiya had an “open door policy and welcomed anyone, Aboriginal or otherwise, in need of some help or direction.” Ref: Uni. of Melb; Fitzroy Aboriginal Heritage Walking Trail.
