Aboriginal Health Service Inc.

Respecting Culture, Acknowledging Diversity


The word Nunyara means ‘Restored to health’ and comes from the language spoken by the Barngarla people, traditional owners.

Nunyara was established in 2002 with the objective to promote the health and wellbeing of the Aboriginal Community by providing responsive primary health care services and to provide facilities for the delivery of a range of health, welfare, education and recreation services to improve the health and wellbeing of the Aboriginal Community through collaboration and partnerships with other agencies. Nunyara has a commitment to involve local Aboriginal people in planning and decision making and will empower individuals, families and the Community to take increased responsibility for their own health.

Nunyara is an Aboriginal Medical Centre and is committed to meeting community needs by providing culturally appropriate primary health care and health promotion programs for the Aboriginal community in Whyalla, as well as education and advice to help families access the services they need from government and mainstream services.
