Strive to resurrect a prehistoric art form that was all but wiped from the pages of Australian history.  As Sydney was first contact/conquered land, traditional handicraft and symbol drawing was almost eradicated by the invading British Empire.

Students will:

  • take part in a Welcome to the Country’ & ochre ceremony acknowledging ‘Mother Earth’;
  • learn about Indigenous symbols and drawing techniques to produce a piece of art that tells us about your life journey so far;
  • use the colours of Mother Earth and listen to their sacred stories;
  • be taught traditional weaving methods to produce earthly works of art made from locally sourced native plants; and
  • understand sustainability by the caretakers of this land.

Curriculum & Syllabuses

  • Aboriginal Studies and Indigenous Culture
  • NAIDOC

Facilitator Profile

Kadoo was my grandmother’s name; I am part of her, just as I am part of this sacred land – Tim Ella of the Yuin people.

Kadoo Tours is owned and operated by Tim Ella and his daughter Latoya Brown, members of the Dharawal-Yuin nation operating Indigenous tours.

Tim is a highly considered educator of the Yuin people and, an Aboriginal guide, he wishes to share all he knows with those that come to visit Guriwal (La Perouse) and Kutti (Watsons Bay).

Grant Hyde is Tim and Latoya’s business partner and, a local historical fiction author (Lords of the Pacific 2009 & Islands of Gold 2011).
