Before the First Fleet arrived on Australian shores, what was the Aboriginal way of life? Why did the Europeans settle in Australia? How did the Aboriginal culture change after their arrival? All these questions - and many more - will be answered on this culturally invigorating excursion. The Gumaraa Rangers will guide your students through the traditions of one of the world’s oldest surviving cultures, teaching them about Aboriginal life before European settlement, the nature and consequences of contact between the Indigenous people and the settlers, and show them first-hand the integral part music, art and language had in their traditions. It’s an action-packed day that will surely have your students talking for weeks!
