The sustainable toolkit tour includes sharing both women's and men's traditional tools, furs, art, weapons and more. Your group will explore traditional ways of living and reflect on the contemporary Aboriginal experience today.
Underpinning this experience are strong messages of sustainability and caring for Country. The experience can also be tailored to include a gentle guided walk through the bush where your Aboriginal Ranger can share their knowledge about a variety of natural resources available for tools, food, medicine and more.
See the natural world through different eyes and gain an appreciation of the deeply embedded living connection to Country.
Our Aboriginal Rangers bring their own deep personal experience and expertise and so your session may also include some singing, dancing, ochre painting, making things out of bush materials, or sharing ancient stories.
