Indigenous tours - Blue Mountains
In a special day hiking in Dharug country from Faulconbridge to Springwood, Blue Mountains Walkabout will introduce you to a new way of seeing the bush. There are meditation exercises and dances, ochre painting and initiation stories, bush tucker and swimming holes. It is a sensual experience, in which you are taught to listen to, taste, smell and feel the bush and its secrets – not just see it. There are about four hours of walking on fairly rough tracks, but with a gentle and personable guide who is a former Aboriginal Discovery Ranger. This walk and other similar experiences should be almost compulsory for non-Indigenous Australians, to help us get a grasp of the Aboriginal relationship with the land.
