Other key activities included in the Cultural Experience are:
Cultural Talk – Manuel Pamkal, winner of the Tourism NT Brolga award in 2013, for outstanding interpretive guide, is happy to talk about growing up in the bush, cultural differences, tribal life and his own family tree after playing a traditional welcoming tune on the didgeridoo.
Painting – Manuel will teach the technique of Rarrk painting (Cross Hatch). Visitors will then paint their own artwork to take home as their souvenir.
Fire Lighting – Visitors have an opportunity to participate in the ancient craft of lighting a fire by rubbing two extraordinary stick together and be fascinated by the story describing the two sticks.
Spear Throwing – Our resident guide Manuel explains the use of a Woomera and Spear to perfectly hit the target that is a fake kangaroo.
After the hands on activities, visitors then have an opportunity to look through the Aboriginal Art Gallery to purchase souvenirs along with authentic didgeridoos and artwork.
Visitors can interact with some of Australia’s wildlife as there are always joey wallabies around – Alex and Petrena give you a warm welcome, both as wildlife carers.
“We can provide flexibility to cater for small or large groups. Our experience is also a perfect addition to school excursions and conference groups.”
