Amazing cultural learning, a stunning location, incredible food and a unique opportunity to heal, reflect and grow. Thank you Dwayne. For Australians it is a must. For overseas visitors it is a rare opportunity to be invited to experience the ancient wisdoms of the oldest living culture. Embrace, enjoy and share.

I attended the Gulaga Creation Tour with my husband and 3 adult children. Words just don’t do justice to the amazing time that we had culturally, spiritually, and in the landscape of nature as seen through the eyes of our first nation’s people. Dwayne and his family welcomed us with wonderful food all weekend, prepared fresh and intertwined with local indigenous produce. They catered for everyone’s taste and there was no shortage of selection. We were part of a bigger group and everyone there was keen to learn about the indigenous culture and stories and to be part of a 40 hour immersion into deeper understanding of this ancient culture. Dwayne is passionate about his heritage and his enthusiasm and rich story telling of ancient beliefs had us all mesmerised. The sunrise ceremony at the beach, the climb up Galaga mountain, the sacred stories and sharing about the symbols that are most important in the culture, sitting around the fire at night and everyone sharing their experiences of the day, and then the beautiful whale ceremony on the beach the next morning was just an experience that we will never forget. I highly recommend this tour or more aptly called, an immersion, in a beautiful part of NSW, and the teachings and learnings that our indigenous culture can provide.

The Gulaga Creation tour run by Dwayne and family is amazing. It is a cultural immersion like no other, challenging physically and emotionally, but ultimately so very rewarding. The insights, the depth of experience, the revelations, the communion with nature and culture are all so wonderful. Dwayne is authentic, nurturing, intelligent and a phenomenal host and guide. It's a must do experience for personal awareness, connection to country and to gain insight and understanding into the importance and front-of-mind relevance of Aboriginal culture and history in our present. The walk is incredible, the ceremonies book-ending the experience meaningful and brilliant. Food is outstanding (and plentiful!), as are cups of tea and time to reflect. Must do.

Dwayne was a wonderful teacher, guide and healer on our journey. If you ever travel to this part of the east coast, you have to take a Guluga Creation tour! Such a unique journey where I learnt so much and experienced even more. Could not recommend Ngaran Ngaran highly enough.
