Ceduna children were able to learn about culture and enjoy activities as part of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day at Ngura Yadurirn Children and Family Centre.

The 'Culture Day' on Friday saw children from the centre and local schools take part in activities such as painting with elders, basket weaving, making bush medicine, and enjoy a jumping castle and face painting.

As well as a sausage sizzle, traditional foods such as kangaroo tail, wombat and damper were also on offer.

Ngura Yadurirn director Susie Bowden said the day was an opportunity to raise cultural awareness in the community.

"This is a way to connect children with the community and immerse them in cultural ways, sustainable environment and respecting bush tucker," she said.

"Everybody had a good time and it helps to build a sense of community - it gets all in the community involved and coming together.

"The knowledge children gain from elders by listening to storytelling, cooking on the fire, and the yarns around the fire, basket weaving and damper making is valuable."
