This summer, enrich your visit to Gariwerd by hearing the stories, songs and insights into the cultures of Gariwerd’s First Peoples.
Brambuk: the National Park and Cultural Centre is hosting a range of cultural activities on selected Saturdays during December and January, giving you the opportunity to experience first-hand the living culture of Gariwerd’s Traditional Owners.
The activities will include live music performances for small, intimate audiences by Dave Arden, Amos Roach and Brett Clarke, amongst others. A series of interactive workshops will feature traditional basket weaving, dance, learning songs in language, and incorporating storytelling into painting.
