Fun Day Out Activities

Stars and Sounds

Bombora Tours

For our First Nations people the stars serve as calendars, a law book, and inform all aspects of their daily life and culture.

Let Indigenous educator and musician Karl Wickey explain the Dreamtime stories behind these star systems such as ‘The Emu in the sky’ & ‘The Sun & Moon’.

Karl will also entertain the students with sounds & songs on the Yidaki (Didgeridoo), its history and the Dreamtime stories relating to it’s inception into Indigenous culture.

Students will be painted up in traditional ochre by a true teacher of Culture.
