Welcome to Nalderun

Nalderun is a Dja Dja Wurrung word meaning “Altogether”

Nalderun Education Aboriginal Corporation is a service that supports the Aboriginal Community, led by Aboriginal people. We are excited to announce that we are now also a member of Neighbourhood House Victoria.

We run many services that support the person and family.  We feel it is important to actively listen to the community and they will tell us what they need. We are also involved in many services for the rest of the community. Many people in the Mount Alexander community are also incredibly supportive of us, this is why our name means altogether.

Dja Dja Wurrung are the Traditional Caretakers of the Mount Alexander Shire, the family within the Mount Alexander Shire is the Nelson Family and our Elder is Uncle Rick Nelson.

We value your time and interest and encourage you to keep checking back as our website is currently under review and will be evolving to reflect our development over the coming months.
