Join Tim Ella, a traditional man of the Yuin Nation, and local historian and author Grant Hyde. Together, as Kadoo Tours, they'll take you on a truly authentic Aboriginal cultural tour of Guriwal (La Perouse) in Kamay Botany Bay National Park.
Walk in Tim's footsteps as he takes you back to his Dreaming. Take part in a traditional ochre ceremony and a Welcome to Country. Watch as Tim spins a bullroarer, wishing his totem, the whale, safe passage on its journey. Learn about the native animals and local sea life while trying traditional tucker taken straight from the bush.
It was here in Botany Bay that first contact was made with Europeans. Learn how this affected Tim's people forever more.
