The centre celebrates the First Australians showcasing local Aboriginal art, culture and history through various exhibitions, workshops, film screenings, music and tours throughout the year.

The Walyalup Aboriginal Cultural Centre (WACC) hosts a program of engaging workshops for adults and kids to learn about culture by Aboriginal people in craft, arts and language classes. Programs coincide with the six Nyoongar seasons: 

  • Kambarang: October/November. The wildflower season and birth of many birds.
  • Birak: December/January. Nyoongars family groups moving together on the coast.
  • Bunuru: February/March. The hot season, camped on the coast, fishing and gathering coastal delicacies.
  • Djeran: April/May. The fat season, salmon schooling and couples paired up. 
  • Makuru: June/July. Nyoongars go back inland, fertility seasons and swans moulting. 
  • Djiba: August/September. Grass season and time to harvest root vegetables.
