LongHouse Hobart is a communal creation hub located on the original inter tidal zone where the fresh water of kunanyi / Mt Wellington, met the salt water of timtumili minanya / Derwent River. A place rich in nutrients, diversity and cultural heritage.

Nayri Niara is a Aboriginal owned and operated Social Enterprise creating amazing life changing experiences.

Connection to Country, Culture and to the Sacred, are guiding principles of Nayri Niara. We provide a range of healing experiences that support people to address destructive forces, heal past wounds and to open to our full potential.

Nayri Niara primarily provides opportunities for people to realign themselves with traditions and cultural practices which emphasise the importance of hearing the voices of our Elders, reclaiming our traditional values of honour, respect and equality and listening to the voice of our Inner Healer /Sprit in order to promote healthier communities for the future.

​We are dedicated to providing opportunities that not only fulfil our cultural obligations of caring for kin and Country but also to create social, environmental and economic change so that ALL BEINGS can thrive together.
