Aboriginal Dance Performance, Cultural Interaction & Q&A

This is the best of Aboriginal culture, combining sacred creation stories; the mystery and raw energy of the didgeridoo and a Corroboree of traditional songs, dances, chants and traditions brought to life by the award-winning Nunukul Yuggera Aboriginal Tribal group.

Age old traditions are handed down to new generations, it’s a true ceremony coming alive on stage as you feel the power of the dancers calling on the ancestors to deliver our story, a story 60,000 years in the making.  The didgeridoo plays a leading role within the show and the MC or main singer/song man brings to life the back-story behind the song.  We always perform this to standing ovations with one of the big highlights being the audience getting up to ‘shake a leg’ and Question and Answer time afterwards with our team.

Your Experience Includes:

  • Traditional Aboriginal song and dance cultural performance
  • Didgeridoo playing
  • Dreamtime (Creation stories) infused throughout experience
  • Acknowledgement to Country
  • Ancient Fire Lighting Ritual
  • Audience Dance Participation and Q&A time
