Hear fascinating stories of the Cadigal, Guringai, Wangal, Gammeraigal and Wallumedegal people of Sydney and learn the Aboriginal names and meanings of significant Sydney landmarks.

Then step onto the shores of Be-lang-le-wool, the Aboriginal name for Clark Island, to learn about the lifestyle of a pre-European Aboriginal coastal settlement. From your Tribal Warrior hosts, you’ll hear all about traditional fishing methods and food gathering techniques, before joining an exciting Aboriginal cultural performance.
