Students will be introduced to the stories and culture of the Birpai People as they explore this unique rainforest environment along a 1.3km raised boardwalk. They’ll learn about the deep spiritual and seasonal connections the Birpai People have with Country.
The students will discover how these people lived in harmony and understand the Aboriginal concepts of connection and place. Together we’ll explore how natural medicines provided the basis for the traditional cultural landscape management practices we see today.
This excursion is designed to support the K-10 syllabus’ The earth’s environment topic.
