About the Tour
Immerse yourself in an exclusive Aboriginal cultural journey as you walk the land with Traditional Custodians and caretakers. Guringai Aboriginal Tour takes guests on a journey of discovery in World Heritage listed Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park where they learn how our Aboriginal ancestors used the site as a classroom, cared for the land and how it cared for them. The tour visits a cave with stencil art and a sandstone engravings site where the guides show how the art is done, how the carvings are made and how we read the site.
You will be accompanied by an experienced Aboriginal guide.
Laurie Bimson is a Guringai descendant and Les McLeod is a Yuin man.
Welcome to Country
To tour starts at 10am, with a Welcome to Country ceremony, welcoming you to the land.
We then take the Basin Track Tour. This rock engraving site was used as a classroom for my people. We will show you how we do rock art and how my people managed the bush and looked after it. We’ll show you how the bush looked after us.
Rock art and engraving
While visiting Aboriginal sites you will learn how our traditional styles of art were created over the generations and hear stories our ancestors possibly told their children a long time ago, one site we visit is an education site.
My people didn’t have to go far for anything, it was all provided for us in a very close vicinity.
We guarantee you will never look at our rock sites the same way again.
Connect with a traditional owner
