A traditional Walkabout is a rite of passage for young Australian Aboriginal males. Mainly between the ages of 10 – 16 years. When the elders of a tribe believe a boy to be mentally and physically equipped, he is sent on his own into the wilderness to ‘become an adult’. The journey could last for 6 months, even years. During this time the boy must survive alone, he must; hunt, catch fish, distinguish edible from inedible plants and identify those used for healing. He must be able to build and seek shelter and protect himself from the elements and wildlife.

 

On our cultural tour, Goolimbil Walkabout, we are privileged to be able offer a platform for our Indigenous guide to provide an insight as to what might be learned before a young boy embarked on his journey. Our guests learn to recognize several plant species and their healing properties, try their hand at spear throwing and taste test bush tucker. Our local guide will captivate you with stories from when the “Dreaming” began and tales from ancestors. There is something for everyone in the family to take away from this experience.

Enjoy a theatrical experience and learn about the wonderful culture that lived here sustainably for tens of thousands of years.
