Yitpi Yartapuultiku – Soul of Port Adelaide

Yitpi Yartapuultiku is a new and exciting Aboriginal cultural destination in the heart of Port Adelaide. The development of Yitpi Yartapuultiku has been undertaken together, to respect the Aboriginal connection to the site, with every aspect of the design shaped by cultural knowledge of Kaurna people. Through deep listening and observation throughout the design and development process, cultural practices and narratives have been seamlessly integrated, ensuring an authentic representation of heritage and culture.

Once open, the centre will offer a diverse and engaging program of activities and experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds. It will be an inclusive and family-friendly environment, welcoming individuals to connect, play, and learn.

At its core, Yitpi Yartapuultiku aims to heal Country and bring the community together, while offering unparalleled opportunities for events, community programs, and tourism.

Years in the making, designed in collaboration with local Aboriginal Custodians, Yitpi Yartapuultiku will be an authentic place for immersion and sharing in local culture.
