Vacations & Travel - - Travel talk -

The Wadandi and Bib­bul­mun peo­ple of the Bus­sel­ton, Duns­bor­ough and Mar­garet River ar­eas of Australia’s south-west have walked this an­cient land for over 50,000 years and you can ex­pe­ri­ence this country through the eyes of these traditional own­ers with Koomal Dream­ing tours. ‘Koomal’ is the traditional name of Wadandi man Josh White­land, who of­fers a range of tours to in­tro­duce you to this an­cient cul­ture, in­clud­ing the 90-minute ‘Ngilgi Cave Cul­tural Tour’. Guests will go for a bush­walk to learn how to iden­tify traditional plants, foods and medicines and discover the art of cre­at­ing a fire by rub­bing sticks to­gether. The high­light is the visit to the Ngilgi

Cave, where Josh gives a spine-tin­gling didgeri­doo per­for­mance deep in­side the cave; the mag­i­cal sounds am­pli­fied by the cave’s acous­tics. There is also a full-day cul­tural tour which vis­its the cave. kooma­l­dream­ing.com.au
