Told through the voices of Victoria's First Peoples, and utilising cutting-edge multimedia, Aboriginal language, artefacts and contemporary artworks, First Peoples; will tell the story of Aboriginal Victoria from the time of Creation to today.

* Be transported to the time of Creation through the story of Bunjil (the wedge-tailed eagle), Creator for many Victorian Aboriginal clans, inside the Creation Cinema
* Hear from Victorian Aboriginal people aged from 8 to 72 speaking about their identity, community and culture in the Deep Listening Space
* Join the Messenger - virtual human guide - on a journey of discovery through the exhibition
* Uncover stories and objects telling how the First Peoples lived before European settlement, highlighting Aboriginal Australia's complex web of social, cultural and economic ties
* Marvel at more than 600 historic and contemporary artefacts from across Victoria and Australia, from one of the world's premier collections of Australian Aboriginal cultural material
* See numerous contemporary artworks and objects commissioned from Koorie artists

First Peoples will be a permanent exhibition on display at the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum.
