The tour begins with a pick up from either Nhulunbuy or Gove Airport, followed by a transfer to a remote Yolngu homeland. Over the tour, you will take part in a variety of cultural activities with the traditional owners of the region. Activites could include weaving, traditional spear-fishing, gathering of bush foods and medicine, dance (Bunggul), storytelling or learning how the Yidaki (didjeridu) is made and played. You'll also learn about Yolngu kinship, traditional lore and language, both spoken and sign and meander through magnificent landscapes.

A good pair of walking shoes is recommended, and possibly a pair that you don't mind getting wet as there may be times that you will walk through water, or along rocky outcrops along the waters edge. A sweatshirt or a long-sleeved windbreaker for cooler nights and mornings is recommended. Please try to keep your luggage to maximum of 10kg preferably in a soft suitcase of aircraft hand luggage size.

Other Info

The tour itinerary is not set in stone. The aim of the tour is to participate in the unstructured and less regimented Yol?u daily life. Each Yolngu homeland offers a slightly different experience, and each time we visit we may be hosted by different family members. Your Yolngu hosts will lead each day's activities, and activities will vary depending on the season and availability of materials.
