About
The Top Didj Cultural Experience has been developed to offer visitors to the Katherine Region, a unique cultural interaction with the aboriginal people. This is achieved by introducing Manuel Pamkal from the Dalabon tribe. Manuel will teach visitors the traditional way of living in the bush as he experienced as a child. He will tell stories and showcase traditional activities such as fire lighting, spear throwing with a woomera and painting whilst educating visitors about aboriginal culture and way of life.

Unique and fun cultural experience
A truly unique experience. Manuel is a living legend, sharing his knowledge of culture and language in an open friendly way. We are a middle aged couple who loved it all. Do it! There's nothing else like it in the Top End

A great experience
Aug 2021
A great experience. Entertaining and insightful, learning about aboriginal culture from Manuel who grew up in the outback. Fire lighting, spear throwing and painting lessons all add to the enjoyment as do the baby rescue wallabies. Manuel comes across as not only amusing but very real and grounded. Make this a part of your trip, you'll be glad you did.

We had a fantastic time, learnt so much in just a few hours. Manuel stories and music are fascinating, sharing his life history! It was very interactive with spear throwing, fire lighting, painting. We would highly recommend:)

I appreciated actually learning about the aboriginal culture from someone who lives it. We were taught 'language', heard stories, learnt to paint the local aboriginal style and throw a woomera.

Excellent and Fun Way to Learn about Local Culture
Jun 2021
Maneul was the most friendly and engaing person to lead this experience. He played the digeridoo, sang with clap stick accompaniment, taught us how to make a fire, showed us how Aboriginals do their paintings (it is not easy!) and led us on a wallaby "hunt" with spear throwing. It was a most enjoyable way to spend a morning and learn at the same time.

Best cultural experience on our trip
Jun 2021
It was fascinating listening to Manuel explain his life, the importance of the culture within which he grew up, and his tutorship in the painting, fire making and spear throwing. He was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
My wife and two grandchildren enjoyed every part of the session, and will retain memories forever.'
Didj is HIGHLY recommended.
