Discover Aboriginal Culture

These Aboriginal tours allow you to gain a greater insight into a mysterious and ancient culture. Follow the 3-day Ngintaka Songline Heritage Trail into the Pitjantjatjara Lands and the Musgrave Ranges, where the Anangu people of the Northern Territory invite you to follow the paths (songlines) walked by their ancestors as they first explored the earth, singing about what they saw. Or enrol in the Angatja Bush College and learn from the indigenous people how to survive in the Bush, foraging for food. See how this particular Aboriginal tribe lives, and enjoy an authentic and fascinating journey through the immense desert area of the Northern Territory.

Making your way to the Pitjantjatjara Lands of South Australia from Ayers Rock, you will have ample chance to view the amazing cave paintings at Cave Hill as well as climb the hill to be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of Mount Connor, Ayers Rock and the Musgrave Ranges. Once you are at the camp, you will be shown how to fashion artefacts and traditional weapons out of gumtrees as well as be told the history of the region from the elders. At the Bush College, you will be shown how to forage for bushtucker, find water in the desert and gather bush medicines. Back at the camp, you'll be able to sample the goodies you have found! Dance and sing to the story when you are taken along the songline - a most sacred ritual - before heading back to Ayers Rock.
