YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER

Guringai Aboriginal Tours

Guringai Aboriginal Tour takes you on a journey of discovery in World Heritage-listed Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park where you 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 you 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.

Insights into your experience

The tour commences at 10am, with a Welcome to Country ceremony, welcoming you to the land.

You then take the Basin Track Tour. This rock engraving site was used as a classroom for my people. You will be shown 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.

While visiting Aboriginal sites you will learn how our traditional styles of art that were created over the generations and hear stories our ancestors possibly told their children a long time ago, one site you will visit is an education site.

You will enjoy a lunch* break at the Resolute picnic area and there will be plenty of time here to talk with Laurie and ask any questions you may have. There are public toilets, BBQs and picnic tables available. (*Bring your own lunch)

After lunch you will take a short walk to the Red Hand Cave to show you the Stencil art and explain the history behind it.
