The future of the Blacktown Institution site: Gordon Morton

Perhaps the most historic site for Aboriginal people in Sydney, the Native Institute site is highly desirable to many interests. The Blacktown council wants the site for a multi-cultural centre, the Darug people know the land should be theirs. Uncle Gordon Morton would like it made into a cultural centre with a library, museum – a tourist place to “get the Darug story put out”.
