I highly recommend to spend a day in the nature together with the guide Evan. You will experience something rare and very special. This is a unique chance to go back to the real thing - the wisdom of the nature ad the aboriginal culture. Leave all your judgement at home and be open for another way of seeing the world - and you might get inspired to change...

Good luck Pernille

The Aboriginal walkabout was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. I learned a lot and I felt the Spirit in the country of beauty rich and rare, Australia.

Didgerigore, Evan!

Into the bush walked five people from five cultures (Russia, USA, Argentina, Holland, Australia) to discuss/experience the worldview of the Aboriginal people. Our guide that day, Evan, has created something special here and I will never forget this day. I think we all took away something a bit different from each other, as it should be... we were all strangers and at different points of our life story (song). But thanks to Evan and his gentle calm voice, we all came to a place of sensory and imaginative exploration related to the meaning of life. I'd call that a good day mate!

A fantastic introduction to aboriginal culture. It was interesting just how gritty the culture is and, at times how cruel it could be. Very different from our own lazy way of life. A great walk too, and memorable.

This tour is given by Evan - it is always given by Evan. It is the real deal. You will wander deep into the bush, the rain forest. You'll see ancient carvings and hear the stories that they tell. You will learn some of the symbols and rituals. You will have a beautiful hike deep in the green of the woods. You will come to understand, even if only lightly, the philosophy, the lore of the aboriginal people from someone who - excuse the pun - walks the walk.

To practical matters the hike is not "easy" - you couldn't take it with an electric scooter or on crutches. But you don't have to be a marathon runner or an experienced hiker. Just a willingness to give it a go. There are plenty of breaks while you hear about the nature or the stories. The train ride up there is very pleasant. It is over an hour each way so this will be an entire day event. Well worth the investment of a day. Be sure to bring lunch, a bottle of water and your raincoat. (Be sure to read all of the advice on the web-site.) In winter it can get quite chilly, but Evan made a big fire while we had lunch in a cave and it couldn't have been cozier.

A beautiful day, a wonderful experience. I can't recommend this highly enough.
