This Aboriginal heritage tour is a perfect introduction to Aboriginal culture for visitors or locals alike. The tour focuses on discovering the ancient Dreamtime identity that is intimate, enlightening and informative. Experience a local Aboriginal greeting and learn some of the language spoken.
The Dreamtime is the Aboriginal understanding of the world, of it's creation, and it's great stories. It is the beginning of knowledge, from which came the laws of existence.
This leisurely walkabout around The Rocks uncovers the authentic history of the Aboriginal people’s saltwater heritage within Sydney Harbour, their land, water use and spiritual connection to the adjoining waterways and foreshores. The tour begins with a local greeting before partaking in a cultural ceremony that acknowledges Earth Mother using her ochre. Discover how to experience contemporary Aboriginal society right in the heart of cosmopolitan Sydney today. Drawing upon knowledge populated from the oldest ecologists, conservationists, wildlife carers, botanists, astronomers, climatologists and marine biologists on the Earth today, the guides will explain how this ancient wisdom continues to reveal itself within the English settlement of The Rocks.
