The Aboriginal Culture in Australia
After visiting Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and becoming somewhat familiar with the Aboriginal culture, it’s no wonder that many people become fascinated with these people and their remarkable history. The fact that the oldest civilization in the world still exists is astonishing. If you are interested in learning more about the Aboriginals, consider the following cultural immersion “walks.” Each is conducted by an Aboriginal guide, knowledgeable in the history, language and traditions of his people.
- Mossman Gorge Tour – where your small group will hear stories and legends, visit sacred ceremonial sites, learn about plants in this rainforest and how they were used, and participate in a traditional smoking ceremony.
- The Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk, part of the Daintree Rainforest in Port Douglas is a similar experience, home to the Kuku Yalanji people.
- The Yura Mulka Cultural Walk north of Adelaide takes you to the Sacred Canyon among the rock artifacts and significant artwork of the Adnyamathanha people.
- The Borrgoron Coast to Creek Tour introduces you to the Dampier Peninsula and the Bardi and Jawi people. These people continue to use ancient practices for fishing and farming with infinite respect for the protection of the environment. This tour also includes a visit to a pearl farm.
- The Wukalina Walk in Tasmania is a 4 day/3 night experience within Mt. William National Park and the Bay of Fires. This award-winning guided tour includes traditional ceremonies and celebrations, discussion of spiritual legends, wildlife encounters, and a deep dive into the Palawa way of life.
