We started our day off with a lovely indiginous woman named Lynette. On our drive to the Corroboree bilabong she was giving us history of the aboriginal people. We saw tons of wallabees and bird life. We then departed on a river boat up the billabong. Had quite a few crocodiles sightings and again more brid life. It was gorgeous!... More

What a beautiful passionate family. We met Selena (young lass) who told us a dream time story followed by showing us trees and the food/medicinal purposes. Then Graham went through some stories, didgeridoos and other sticks. Selena showed us basket weaving (hubby caught on quite quickly surprisingly). Graham showed us spear throwing (hubby was itching for a turn). We gathered... More

I booked this great tour online for myself and a colleague of mine for a 7am pick up on Sunday 3 May. Lynette was at the hotel just before 7 and we rode on her comfortable van to go to Corroboree Billabong Wetland, the first destination. On over one hour drive she told us a lot about herself, her family... More

Pudakul Aboriginal Cultural Tours was a wonderful experience! The staff was absolutely fantastic from the management, Lynette, the guides Graham and Tarizma. The transportation was comfortable and reliable and the regional and cultural knowledge gained on this tour was invaluable. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for an eye opening Aussie top-end experience!
