UKARIA honours our First Nations by fostering a shared sense of respect for this land, and we acknowledge and pay our respects to the Peramangk, traditional custodians of the land on which the Cultural Centre stands.


The UKARIA Foundation was established in July 2018. Chaired by David McKee AO, its aim is to support UKARIA’s cultural program in perpetuity. Musicians from Australia and around the world have established UKARIA as a South Australian cultural icon. Join us in creating its future by making a donation to the UKARIA Foundation.

We recognise and thank everyone who has supported UKARIA.
