Brisbane Aboriginal Cultural Walking Tour

37246 - Brisbane QLD 4001

Explore Brisbane with local Aboriginal tour guides and walk with your small group of no more than 10 participants in the footsteps of their ancestors through the heart of Meeanjin (Brisbane City).

You are invited to experience a 3 hour walking tour, with a local Aboriginal guide, around some of Brisbane's major inner precincts that highlight  fascinating elements of Brisbane's Aboriginal history and current perspectives along the Brisbane River. This tour will feature public art by Aboriginal artists (including pieces from BlackCard Co-Founder Aunt Lilla Watson).

Your tour really emphasises the dynamic arts practices from the oldest continuing living culture in world history. Visit outdoor locations, local galleries and venues across Brisbane's Cultural Centre Precinct to explore the scope of Aboriginal Art that exists in Australia's New World City....a city with an ancient past. 

You will experience Aboriginal art from various regions across Queensland and Australia....as well as a range of art forms and mediums. Australian Aboriginal art is the oldest ongoing tradition of art in the world. Did you know....Aboriginal painting represents 99% of the timeline of Australian painting. Aboriginal people in Australia are now recognised as the largest producers of Art per capita. Over 50% of Australian artist are Indigenous and this coming from a group comprising only 3% of the total population. 

You will be welcomed by the sound of the Didgeridoo, an ancient instrument which will captivate you and set the scene of a rich cultural experience. 

"As with imagemaking, Aboriginal music also unites consciousness with the invisible laws and energy patterns of nature. Aboriginal art is perhaps most accurately described as a method for gaining knowledge of nature and its invisible Dreaming". An example is the playing of the didjeridoo, a long wooden flute, perhaps the oldest musical instrument on earth.
