I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.
Event:
Learn more about the original people & culture
Enjoy an afternoon walking around West End, South Brisbane and Brisbane City while learning about the Aboriginal significance of these areas. Join Alex Bond, an Aboriginal scholar, from Aboriginal Cultural Landscape Walking Tours on the afternoon of Thursday, 17 June 2021.

Aboriginal Cultural Landscape Walking Tour
Learn more about the Aboriginal Culture of Brisbane


Alex will highlight the traditional Aboriginal significance of Brisbane whilst discussing colonial era events and how today's landscape has a continued Aboriginal significance. Throughout the walking tour, Alex will stop to discuss the cultural geography of the landmarks. Learn about the socio-economic and cultural activities, initiation sites and ritualised fighting sites that occurred in traditional times. On the Aboriginal Cultural Landscape Walking Tour, you will also learn about events between Indigenous peoples and New Settlers during historic times.

As the weather is unpredictable consider bringing an umbrella if it looks like rain, alternatively a hat and sunscreen for finer weather. The Aboriginal Cultural Landscape Walking Tour lasts about 3 hours so a pair of comfortable walking shoes and water would be a good idea. Other things you need to consider bringing are a notepad and pen, a camera, any medical requirements, and a Go Card or approximately $5.50 for local transport.
