Great Southern's newest university is coming!

Curtin University architecture students will design a new base for Nowanup Bush University, an important meeting place for Nyungar people located 50 kilometres west of Bremer Bay.

The bush university concept, initiated by Professor Simon Forrest from Curtin University, Nowanup Nyungar Elder Mr Eugene Eades and Gondwana Link CEO Mr Keith Bradby, aims to provide a bush setting for transformational learning.

Curtin University’s Elder-in-Residence Professor Simon Forrest said the project offered a unique opportunity for five groups of Curtin University architecture students to each work with an architecture firm to create a new design and model for the facilities at Nowanup.

Professor Forrest spoke to Triple M and said the new education facility won't just be for uni students.
