Your Half-Day Tour Itinerary
Experience an Aboriginal acknowledgment, a traditional welcome to country, and truly connect with nature. Drive over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and visit its Aboriginal north boundary rock engraving site. Return over the bridge and learn about the south boundary dynamics and history of the area. Next, take a short walkabout through The Rocks, exploring Aboriginal history and learning about the original use of this area. Visit Barney Reserve and see seasonal flora and fauna. Discover how Aboriginal People used these valuable resources and how a personal connection is formed with them.
From Campbells Cove, catch amazing views of Sydney Harbour-Opera House. Here, we’ll focus on the local Aboriginal Peoples’ saltwater lifestyle and explore the spiritual values of the Harbour as an Aboriginal site. We’ll also stop at Circular Quay/Woccanmagulli. Visit Argyle Cut and discover the importance of Earth Mother’s ochre (a natural paint), which exists in large clay pods on the wall of rocky outcrop points along the tour route. Drive around the Botanic Gardens, take a walkabout through Macquarie’s Chair opposite Sydney Opera House & Sydney Harbour Bridge and discover not just the Aboriginal history of this area, but the English use of this land.
It was a wonderful experience. Great staff, very friendly and fantastic MC. We met up at Circular Quay and cruised around to all parts of the Harbour.
