In 2006 the Indigenous Land Corporation, with the support of the local community, purchased the land where the Redfern Public School.

In 2008 the NCIE was officially incorporated as the National Indigenous Development Centre, and in 2009, became the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence. The NCIE builds abilities and creates opportunities by providing and promoting enlightened thought leadership through its initiatives and facilities.

It is made up of five buildings, including the EORA Fitness Centre, EORA Conference Centre, EORA Campus, Gadigal House and the Koori Job Ready Site housing the Les Tobler Centre and Yaama Dhiyaan.

 

Their programs focus on:

- Arts and Culture that aim to inspire and activate creativity and identification with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through participatory arts programs that incorporate visual, literary and performing arts.

- With Health and Wellness they take a fresh approach to informing and motivating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to increase their wellbeing by developing their knowledge and skills to make positive choices for healthy lifestyles.

- Learning and Innovation complements and enhances the effectiveness of traditional education programs through their approach to learning that emphasizes skills for life and work and that promotes creativity, enterprise and innovation while leveraging the latest technologies.

- Sport and Recreation cultivates talent, develop physical intelligence and put sport and recreation into a wider context through our various individual and team activities, training and development programs.
