This tour was absolutely brilliant. My partner and I were led by Graham (the owner/operator of the business and elder of the Larrakia people) and his daughter through the traditions and cultural practices of their people. They were really informative, really friendly and very generous. We were the only people on the tour and they still ran it as normal.... More

Wow what a spectacular day this was! It started with a drive out to Corroboree Billabong during which Lynette shared a personal story of hers and her family's history. We then went on a boat cruise through the wetlands where we had an extensive experience of seeing native birds and crocodiles (some quite large) in their natural habitat. PERFECT weather... More
