ABORIGINAL CULTURE


Until recent years, the closest that many foreign visitors came to Aboriginal culture in Australia was buying a cheap Chinese-made boomerang in a tacky souvenir shop. But these days, awareness and appreciation of Aboriginal art and culture are at an all time high. Tropical North Queensland is rich with Aboriginal culture, and we will show you a range of Aboriginal experiences that will be both enjoyable and educational. Enjoy one of the oldest and richest cultures of the world.

"They say we have been here for 40,000 years, but it is much longer. We have been here since time began. We have come directly out of the Dreamtime of our creative ancestors."
The history and culture of the Australian Aboriginal people stretches back for TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS, and when we imagine what life must have been like for the indigenous people before European settlement, we conjure up stereotypical images of nomads moving in dry, hot desert landscapes, living in basic shelters and eating kangaroo cooked on an open fire. But in Tropical North Queensland, where the wet season can bring weeks of rain, many aboriginal tribes lived under the dense rainforest canopy, in semi-permanent villages of dome-shaped houses, cooking in ground ovens and curing meat, fish and eels on smoking racks.

Venture into the wild spaces of Far North Queensland, and you enter a world steeped in ancient Aboriginal culture with spirits and legends recorded in rock art.
