Overview

Be touched by the most ancient human culture on earth in a 90-minute leisurely walkabout with an Aboriginal guide in The Rocks Sydney, and journey into DreamTime, the culture of Aboriginal People.

illi-Langi The Rocks Aboriginal Dreaming Tour is 100 per cent Aboriginal-owned and was developed by Aboriginal Elder, Margret Campbell, a Dunghutti – Jerrinjah woman. It is led by Aboriginal guides who have her permission to share her cultural knowledge. The tour gives you the opportunity to discover how the ancient Aboriginal DreamTime is still alive within the modern Sydney landscape and how the billion-year-old harbour, marine environment, sandstone strata, waterways, flora and fauna continue to influence how Aboriginal people live today.

Amanda was a phenomenal tour guide. Her passion and desire to inspire a reconnection with nature was woven into all of her stories. Our entire family agreed the tour was a highlight of our trip to Sydney. Those who do not hear these stories are missing out on the rich culture of people who have so much to teach us about respect, love of nature, sustainability, and balance. We walked away from the tour with new insights and and a genuine desire to do our part to ensure we educate others about the history of the people who first inhabited this land.

The guide was terrible. It was not knowledgeable of the aboriginal culture He spoke about gender todems for more than 30 minutes He also told us (3 on the tour) we wouldn’t be able to hear him because of the karaoke he did the night before I requested a refund but haven’t heard anything from the Company

One of the highlights of my trip to Sydney. I learned so much about the Aboriginal culture and our guide was very open to questions and discussing the answers in great detail! I would absolutely recommend this trip to anybody visiting Sydney or anybody that lives there that has not experienced it yet. I would give 6 stars if I could!

A wonderful walking tour that highlighted the Aboriginal peoples harmony with the landscape and their familial connections to the land, the animals and each other. If anyone is interested in developing a greater knowledge of the First Nation people groups I would highly recommend joining one of these tours.
