Just 2 hours north of Sydney is Mount Yengo, a site as sacred to the peoples of the East as Uluru is to those of Central Australia. Wollombi Aboriginal Cultural Experiences and Consultancy shares this area’s rich culture and history on tours and camps in and around Yengo National Park.

Guided tours of this area's abundant sacred sites and beautiful rock engravings are a great way to experience living Aboriginal culture and learn local lore, like the fascinating story of how Mount Yengo came to be.

On longer immersion camps, Aboriginal hosts guide you to cultural sites and show you how artefacts are made. You’ll enjoy dance workshops, campfire stories and bushwalks, and soak up fascinating knowledge about local bush tucker and medicine.

Each tour leaves and returns to Wollombi, an important meeting place for Aboriginal people across millennia.

Wollombi Aboriginal Cultural Experiences is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.

    Yengo is home to a great diversity of wildlife, including around 50 species of mammals such as wombats, wallaroos, koalas and gliding possums, and over 200 species of birds. Watch out for the gang gang, yellow-tailed and glossy black cockatoos gliding between the treetops, or see if you can spot a lyrebird darting across bush tracks. Look closely at the steep rugged cliff faces found in the park as you might catch a glimpse of the endangered brush-tailed rock-wallaby.

    • Yango walking track Yango walking track in Yengo National Park takes hikers through pristine wilderness, including rainforest, and offers outstanding views.

    Yengo National Park and the surrounding areas have been an important spiritual and cultural place for the Darkinjung and Wonnarua People for thousands of years. No wonder there are over 640 recorded Aboriginal cultural sites in the park and nearby areas. Creation stories recount that Biamie, the ancestral being, stepped off the flat top of Mount Yengo into the sky when he finished his creation. Today, Aboriginal stories and rock engravings connect us with the rich culture of this ancient land and its people.

    • Finchley cultural walk An astonishing wealth of ancient Aboriginal rock art, as well as great insights into Aboriginal history, draws visitors to the Finchley cultural walk.
