My grand daughter and I learnt to understand the stories and pointers and spiritual meanings of rock carvings and cave paintings. The importance of Wollombi Aboriginal song trails, camp sites, traditional lore, spiritual significance, bush tucker and medicine were passed onto us freely. Thanks Jocelyn for this wonderful experience.

I went along to the twilight tour with my husband and two friends on Saturday 23rd Dec. Adam and Joscelyn were both entertaining and informative. Such a dynamic and interesting couple. The Yengo National Park is beautiful and we enjoyed some local wine, and cheese at the most scenic look out at the end of the tour. We felt our knowledge of Indigenous history and culture has deepened and are now keen to book one of the camping tours. Our only disappointment is that we didn't take our teenage children. They are not generally keen on tours but lm sure they would have loved this one.

Bush tucker, bush medicine, rock carvings, traditional lore... Our guide, a Wiradjuri man, is knowledgeable and proud of his culture but humble enough to share his heritage with all. This afternoon experience was all the website promised it to be.

Jocelyn and Adam, our guides, were incredibly knowledgeable and interesting. We sampled bush tucker, saw some beautiful ancient art, experienced a smoking ceremony and witnessed breathtaking views. We even found a couple native Gowanna's. Highly recommended. Thank you!!

We found this tour extremely enjoyable and enlightening. Fantastic rock art - paintings and carvings. Wildlife and medicinal plants thrown in. Adam and Jocelyn were fantastic in their willingness to share their magnificent cultural heritage. To find such a tour so close to Newcastle and Sydney is quite amazing.
