With a history stretching back at least 50,000 years, Aboriginal Australians are the world’s oldest living culture. Today Indigenous Australians help us all to gain a better understanding of the spirituality and wonder of this ancient land.
Share in the discovery of the history of Australia told through art, dance, myths, music and the land itself. As the traditional owners of this land, Aboriginal Australians have a profound connection to it, which they share through incredible experiences. From listening to Dreamtime stories by the campfire to gathering bush tucker or catching fish with traditional spears, these experiences will connect travellers to the land in the most meaningful way.
The Northern Territory’s region of Katherine, which covers an incredible 480,000 square kilometres and touches both the Queensland and West Australian borders, is not only a beautiful and diverse region, but one that is rich with Indigenous history and culture. One of the jewels of the Katherine region is Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) National Park, home to many significant rock art sites and which is best explored under the guidance of one of the Jawoyn people, who run Nitmiluk National Park in conjunction with the Parks and Wildlife Commission of the Northern Territory.
Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve
Located just outside the nation’s capital of Canberra is Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, an untouched pocket nestled on the fringe of the Namadgi National Park, brimming with wildlife and traces of Aboriginal history. The beautiful reserve - named after the Aboriginal word ‘Jedbinbilla' meaning a place where boys become men - is home to an abundance of wildlife including emus, kangaroos, wallabies, and the endangered northern corroboree frogs, tiny creatures with black and lime stripes. Bushwalking and mountain bike riding is a great way to take it all in, while tranquil picnic spots and ranger guided activities are also available.
