A traditional bush tucker tour is a fantastic way to teach kids about Aboriginal culture: it’s tactile and interactive, and they get to experience the privilege of receiving first-hand insights into this ancient culture.
Kooljaman at Cape Leveque in WA is an award-winning, luxury wilderness camp jointly owned by the neighbouring indigenous communities. The camp offers a range of accommodation – from family safari tents to en suite cabins and camp sites, so you can choose how ‘au naturel’ you’d like to go.
As well as the fantastic spread of nature-based activities with which to fill your days – and, of course, the gorgeous, distinctive ochre-edged beaches – you can choose to immerse yourself in the local environment and culture through experiences like the Bush Tucker Tour, where you can learn about native seasonal fruits, medicines and bush tucker; or the Hunters Creek Taalong Tour, where local guide Brian shares the colourful local history and teaches traditional fishing and crabbing methods along the banks of Hunters Creek.
Visit Bundy’s Cultural Tours and Brian Lee Tagalong Tours for more information.
