Enter the world of the Aboriginal in our pre-colonial Aboriginal village as we bring a traditional day in the Aboriginal village to life. Forget classroom learning, this is history and participation in action!
First your school is broken into ‘tribes’ as we select a chief to represent each tribe and you participate in an ancient message stick ceremony before the journey to the Aboriginal village, your home for the day. Your group will then select a Chief and conduct a naming ceremony before proceeding through interactive cultural stations where students will participate in all aspects of traditional Aboriginal life.
8 Stations Include:
Other traditional activities such as basket (dilly-bag) weaving, message stick, clap stick or boomerang painting and traditional food tastings can also be included.

As the traditional bloodline descendants of the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Redlands, Stradbroke, and Moreton Bay regions, we would be honoured to prepare a deep, rich program for your school excursion. Through storytelling and interaction, students will come away with an eye-opening understanding of the Aboriginal culture, history, and traditions that meets the educational requirements.
Throughout the excursion, students will learn about our ancient traditions and protocols, fire lighting techniques, hear stories from the Dreamtime, throw a spear and learn about traditional hunting techniques including the deadly Boomerang, how to play the didgeridoo (boys) and clap-sticks (girls). Engage their senses through tasting bush foods and gain an understanding of all aspects of traditional Aboriginal life.
