On arrival, have your face painted in traditional indigenous colors and then settle down to learn about aboriginal history during an Art of My People presentation. Watch a bayngga (clay oven) demonstration, observe the preparation of natural medicine and foraged food, and listen to the dulcet tones of the didgeridoo. Also, choose to participate in boomerang- or spear-throwing if you wish.
