The world’s oldest living culture delivers a diversity of experiences that create truly memorable Australian journeys.
Australia is home to the oldest living culture on Earth and Aboriginal guides across the country offer a real connection to the place and a new way of experiencing it. Every part of Australia is Aboriginal country and every part of that country has a series of stories and experiences that are unique to it.
Discover Aboriginal Experiences is a flagship suite of extraordinary Aboriginal Australian experiences, showcasing the world’s oldest living culture through the cornerstones of cultural insight, authenticity and meaningful connection.
Aboriginal guides are warm, welcoming and extremely generous of spirit. They are keen to share their story and give an insight into their culture. They bring the landscape to life allowing visitors to gain a deeper appreciation of Australia.
Discover Aboriginal Experiences offers an exciting array of activities, tours and accommodation such as:

Guided bush tucker walks reveal the surprising fecundity of the Australian landscape, while outback dining, infused with the unique flavours of the Australian bush, offers a deliciously immersive experience. Alternatively, try your hand at traditional hunting.
You’ll find a wide selection of exhilarating experiences on offer in Australia’s beautiful landscapes, from kayaking, quad-biking and hiking to 4WD adventures.
Art and Museums

Go off the beaten track and you’ll soon learn that there is not one, but many Aboriginal cultures, each with its own language, belief system and powerful connection to place.
On an extended immersive journey, you’ll gain both insight in the world’s oldest living cultures and understanding of Aboriginal spirituality and connection to country.
Coastal & Aquatic
Aboriginal culture is not only connected with the Outback but also with Australia’s spectacular coastal regions. Fish, search for mud crabs, snorkel, kayak and swim in beautiful beaches and aquamarine waterways.
