Go Native

What better way to amuse the kids than an experience that combines fun, learning and a greater understanding of the local Aboriginal culture?

For the first time this school holidays, Lois Cook from Aboriginal Cultural Concepts is taking groups of school-aged children and their parents on bush tucker tours of Nyangbal country, around Ballina and Lennox Head.

Another three-hour guided tour will uncover the hidden secrets of the area with visits to ancient mythological sites.

Stories and legends abound, including how the goanna and the snake created our local landscape.

The tour visits secret middens, old camping grounds, Bora rings, contact sites, fertility sites, initiation grounds, fish traps and hunting areas.

The cost of tours ranges from $20 for children to $60 for adults.

Discounts are available to readers of The Northern Star by mentioning this ad. Phone Lois on 6680 2818 or 0405 654 280, or email culturalconcepts
