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).
