Joy Trudgett was a proud Wiradjuri woman who was an active leader in the local Aboriginal community. She advocated for Aboriginal affairs, believed in self-determination, and dedicated her life to bettering the livelihoods of both the Aboriginal and broader community of Gilgandra.

This project aligns with the Gilgandra Cultural Precinct Strategic Plan, has followed extensive community consultation with the Aboriginal Stakeholder Group since late 2018, and has received funding support from the NSW Government Regional Tourism Activation Fund and Aboriginal Partnerships Program.
