Aboriginal Australia

Australia’s Aboriginal people have a continuous history spanning more than 50,000 years, one of the oldest living cultures on the planet.

Theirs is the oldest story on Earth and story-telling in deeply ingrained in their every cell. The Aboriginal culture is a living legacy of spiritual knowledge, custodianship of land, culture, people and the connectedness of all things shared through rituals, art, dance, music, secret stories and journeys created in the Dreamtime – the time when ancestral spirits created the landforms and all life.

The Australian landscape today is a map of the spirits’ journeys and stories created over thousands of years ago describing these journeys. These form the basis for stories that are still told. Aboriginal hosts and guides are keen to share their story and give an insight into their culture, which is often delivered with an engaging humour and deeply moving perspective.
