Join our Indigenous Tourism Officer for a guided walk and yarn around the Arboretums Forest 2, where you will see native plants that are used for medicinal, culinary, and Cultural use. This walk will bring the landscape to life allowing you to gain a deeper respect for Aboriginal Traditions and Culture.

Be guided on the use of stones axes, coolamons, skins, and clapsticks with a hands-on artefact display and participate in traditional ochre use. Hear why Caring for Country is vital and continues to play a significant role in Culture today.

Included in the tour is a Ngala Tours cotton drawstring Dilly Bag that contains samples of food such as mountain pepper flatbread, using flavours and ingredients from the Australian bush.

These immersive and enjoyable tours are a relaxing way to learn about Aboriginal Culture in a beautiful bush setting.
