Experience the ancient art of dance and storytelling

These spring school holidays, Rouse Hill House & Farm is hosting Boomerang Art & Dance for boys and girls aged 5 and up!

Come to Rouse Hill House & Farm to meet the staff from Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural & Education Centre. Then paint a boomerang and your face to experience the ancient art of dance and storytelling in our beautiful bush setting.

Dancing and ochre painting are used to pass down knowledge and tell stories. Boomerangs also play a significant role in traditional ceremonies. They are sometimes used to tell the didgeridoo player when to start playing, to keep the beat and rhythm for dancers, to scare the birds out of the trees or for hunting kangaroos.

Bookings are essential: choose from sessions on 2 and 9 October at 10.00am. Click the link to secure your child's place - Rouse Hill House & Farm
