Our Culture, Our Country
Culture is in our hearts, the landscape and in our blood. Throughout July, the oldest living culture will come alive through stories, displays and celebrations. Every Wednesday between 11am and 2pm join our Aboriginal Guide in the Culture Hub. Try your hand at traditional techniques such as boomerang throwing, weaving, sand drawing or fire making. Warm up around the campfire and experience a true roo tail cook up. Activities change weekly. Survival in the Desert is on daily except Wednesday’s between 11am and 12pm. Learn how Aboriginal people survive by hunting and gathering in the desert. Every Tuesday and Friday between 8.30am and 9.30am join us for ‘Bush Knick Knacks’ and try your hand at native crafts using seeds, nuts and leaves. Every Friday between 2pm and 3pm learn how fire was an important resource in our culture and survival at ‘Ure! Our tool the fire.’ Every Tuesday between 2.30pm and 3.00pm take part in a fun way of learning the local language, Arrernte using bingo! Events run throughout the month of July.
