We'll learn about the beliefs and values of the Dharawal People and their strong connection to Country. Together we'll examine a number of spiritual sites and enact cultural protocol, showing respect for elders past and present.
We'll traverse a rocky outcrop and view Aboriginal rock engravings up close. Students will learn about the Dharawal seasonal calendar, explore middens and learn about gunyahs (shelters) by recreating an Aboriginal camp.
The group will come away with a deep appreciation for the way of life of the Dharawal People. Students will understand how life changed for the Dharawal People following British settlement in the 1770s.
