Your private museum guide will highlight the key exhibits to give you a thorough understanding of the cultural collections and First Australians galleries. This will be your initial introduction to this fascinating culture, feel free to ask questions and explore.
Walk On Country
Next your Splendour host will drive you to La Perouse, on the northern headland of Botany Bay (just 30mins from Sydney CBD), a land the Aboriginal people once called Guriwal, “Whale”.
Here you will meet your Aboriginal guide, a respected member of the Yuin-Dharawal nation and your guide for the next 2 hours. He will conduct a traditional Welcome To Country ceremony, formally blessing you to walk the land with him and opening your mind and soul to the learnings of the land.
Discover the ancient history of the bush, ‘Caring for Country’ and local plant and animal species and some of their traditional uses.
Australian native plants have been used for thousands of years by Aboriginal people. Over morning tea, taste some traditional recipes as well as contemporary creations using native ingredients such as lemon myrtle, wattle seed and macadamia nut oil.
From La Perouse say goodbye to your Aboriginal guide, your Splendour host will then take you on a scenic tour of Sydney’s Eastern Beaches – driving up the coast you will pass Maroubra, Clovelly and Bronte beaches.
You’ll visit an Aboriginal Art Gallery to view art sources from some of the most remote Aboriginal communities in the county.
