Peter was very informative and friendly. We felt we knew a bit about indigenous culture through previous experience but we learned much more and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Peter and his family are a credit to their mob & I highly recommend this tour

A brilliant informative overview of indigenous culture relating to bush food, bush medicine, plants, weapons, dot art and bush jewellery. Well organised, planned and delivered. Peter and Natasha were fabulous, extremely welcoming and knowledgable. Absolutely worth it. Strongly recommend to all and buy a lovely unique one off bush bracelet as you leave.

Peter, Natasha and Debbie provide an hour long, interesting and informative presentation on the culture of their peoples. The way they talk in one area then move onto another area for the next session worked really well. They all shared their knowledge of their local area and culture that was understandable for all ages. Questions were encouraged and answered.

This was exceptional, our hosts Natasha, Debbie and Richard (the latter 2 are the traditional owners on the land we entered), were wonderful. The tour goes through 6 different stops, grinding stones, seeds collection and the making of “cakes”, male weapons & instruments, Ochre, modern beads/seed, fruits/seeds collected, medicinal vegetation and the smoking ceremony. We learnt so much about their culture and knowledge of the environment. Food, medicine, spiritual and their respect of country. This is a respectful, educational session and we learnt so much and significant more respect. Natasha provided the stories that added so much to our visit. I struggle to find the right words to describe this experience, we were so engrossed at every stage of the tour.
