First Nations Tourism Experiences – Sydney: The Rocks Aboriginal Dreaming Tour
To celebrate Indigenous Business Month, Intrepid Travel has joined forces with Welcome to Country, a not-for-profit marketplace for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experiences and products, to deliver 200 free First Nations tourism experiences across Narrm (Melbourne) and Warrane (Sydney) each weekend throughout October. Sydneysiders can enjoy a stroll through The Rocks in the heart of Warrane and learn the history and Dreaming of Eora Country with Aunty Margret, while Melbournians can flex their creativity in a jewellery making workshop with Wiradjuri mixed media artist Ange Jeffrey. There are 100 free spots available in each city, encouraging Aussies to engage in a First Nations experience during Indigenous Business Month.
This leisurely walkabout around The Rocks, on the edge of Sydney Harbour uncovers the authentic history of the Aboriginal people’s saltwater heritage within Sydney Harbour. Their land and water use and their spiritual connection to the adjoining waterways and foreshores. First Nations guides will demonstrate how the place we now know as Sydney continues to weave the Dreamtime Southern X text into its modern, built up environment. Get set to discover how to experience contemporary Aboriginal culture right in the heart of cosmopolitan Sydney.
