Maitland's Nanga Brook Kep-Bilo Tour
Connect to Culture
The ability to connect deeply to the surrounding earth, read the whispers of the trees and interpret the secrets of the bushland is a spectacular gift possessed by Aboriginal elder and Kaarak Dreaming owner and operator, Maitland Hill. Join Maitland on the Nanga Brook Kep-Bilo Tour to explore Dwellingup's deep connection to Aboriginal culture. You'll explore the Nanga Brook walk trail and learn about identifying bush medicine, learning traditional hunting techniques, and understanding the power of Dreamtine stories.
At the Yarning Circle, Maitland demonstrates traditional artefacts including Didgeridoo Playing with Boomerangs. During this immersive cultural tour, Maitland shares how to start fire the traditional way and try the Mar Midi Fire Stick for yourself. You'll also learn how ancient aboriginal symbols are used in sand mapping and how Aboriginal people made their own Bush Rope.
Importantly, the Nanga Brook trail is a Class 3 walk, with moderate conditions with some uneven ground. The 30-minute gentle walk is suitable for most ages and abilities, but is not suitable for wheelchairs.
