Kadoo Tours Excursion – Schools

La Perouse or Watsons Bay

Immerse your students in Aboriginal culture at La Perouse or Watsons Bay!

An authentic and educational experience with insight into the oldest surviving culture on Earth.

Students will meet and tour through the native bush and coastline with local Aboriginal guides from the Dharawal – Yuin people.

“Their tours in both La Perouse and Watsons Bay, highlighting how early Indigenous lived in these areas has allowed us to connect to a history we rarely knew existed. The tours are informative and fun and easily keep the children engaged, in seeing how plants and trees we walk past everyday, are sources of food and medicine to our first nations people.

I would highly recommend Kadoo tours to any school service especially vacation care.  The locals are beautiful and the knowledge imparted a fantastic way to build connectivity with our Indigenous heritage.”
