Wollombi Aboriginal Cultural Experiences is owned and operated by Leanne King, a Dhurug woman who has been learning Wollombi cultural lore for over 30 years.
Our culture is a living culture. Come with us to hear the little lore stories. These are the very beginning stories of our Ngurrumpa (our camp world) as given to us by our Elders. Far from being 'myth' these stories teach us how we should be and relate to all things around us. Wollombi has been, for millennia, an important meeting place, to which Aboriginal people would travel great distances for trade, social gatherings, and ceremony. The focus of these ceremonial gatherings was, and still is, Mount Yengo, every bit as sacred to the peoples of the East as Uluru to those of the Centre. From Yengo's summit Baiame, one of the primary creative forces, stepped back into the skyworld after life had been created and the lore set in place. To ensure that this lore would not be forgotten, Baiame's final act was to carve it in stone. We would like to share some of the story of these engraving sites with you.
Yengo National Park was inscribed to form part of the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Greater Blue Mountains Area in 2000 and offers spectacular views, remote wilderness with steep gorges and rocky ridges and Aboriginal cultural heritage.
This is a three day, two night experience that will allow you to immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture on Country, in Yengo National Park. Get together with family and friends and enjoy a range of camp activities over three days.
