Murra Wolka is owned and operated by the family of Joe Skeen. It all started when Joe Skeen passed down tradition of making boomarangs to his children. Since its establishment some three decades ago, the family has worked in unity to promote the indigenous culture of Australia. Indigenous Australian art is very similar to the symbolic and abstract elements of modern art. Traditional media include bone painting, stone painting, and sand painting. Stone paintings were crucial for conveying indigenous hunting practices and animal migration and imparting customs and traditions to the next generation.

Flag: The Australian National Flag has the Union Jack in the upper left-hand quarter nearest the flagpole to acknowledge the history of British settlement in Australia. The Commonwealth Star on the Australian National Flag created in 1901 had six points representing the states. The seventh point was added in 1908 to represent Commonwealth territories. Four seven-pointed stars arranged in a cross, together with a smaller five-pointed star appear on the right-hand side of the flag to represent the Southern Cross.
National Day: January 26
Language: Australia does not have an official language, but English is universally spoken. Australian English is similar to other English variations. However, there are certain distinctions in pronunciation, intonation, and colloquialism. For example, Australians say "g'day, mate" as a greeting, "ta" to express thanks, and "see ya" to bid farewell. A common catchphrase used by Australians is "no worries," which has different meanings depending on the context, including "you're welcome, don't worry, it's okay, and of course."
