February marked our wawa biik one year anniversary. We think it is important to celebrate our milestones with you – after all, you are very much part of our journey. In this edition, our team reflects on the positives of what wawa biik has achieved and will continue to achieve for the Taungurung Nation; we touch on the team’s visit to Budj Bim and we hear from happy guests who enjoyed our new wawa Euroa Wayilak (young people) experience.

Over the coming weeks, we’d also love to hear from you – tell us what you loved about your wawa biik experience in 2023. Do you have any reflections a few months on? Do share with us via hello@wawabiik.com.au or post a google business review.

Thanks to everyone that has connected with us and to all those yet to say wawa to biik, we hope to meet you in 2024!
