Indigenous Experiences

Indigenous Experiences

One of the world’s longest surviving cultures, Aboriginal Australia is deeply connected to the land and today focuses on sharing its stories and experiences whether learning about the Aboriginal spiritually ‘the dreamtime’ traditions, ceremonies, bush tucker and medicines. Explore places steeped in Aboriginal history, walk around the base of Uluru (Ayers Rock) with an Indigenous guide, find rock art galleries that are 50,000 years old and hear dreamtime stories and learn their connections to this sacred land. 

Immerse yourself in the Maori culture in New Zealand. The Maori place a high value on the natural environment – the forests, rivers, mountains, lakes and sea are all living treasures that play a significant role in their legends. Hear stories on how the land of Aotearoa came to be, explore historic villages and the surrounding areas, see warriors in traditional dress and view ancient carvings.

Each island of the South Pacific has their own fascinating and unique history and culture with opportunities for visitors to immerse themselves in the traditions, language, food, arts, music and dance. The Indigenous cultures are still active in many of these destinations and very much a part of daily life.
