WUKALINA WALK

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - SNAPSHOT -

If beaches where the only other sunlovers are wom­bats sound ap­peal­ing, pull on your walk­ing boots and head to the north­east of the state, where the Wukalina Walk opened this year. This four-day, Abo­rig­i­nal-owned-and-guided walk tra­verses an area in­clud­ing the lara­puna/Bay of Fires and ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes two nights in domed huts that are in­spired by tra­di­tional de­signs, as well as a night in a re­stored light­house keeper’s cot­tage. The walk is an ed­u­ca­tion in, and ex­pe­ri­ence of, the cul­ture of the Palawa peo­ple — the only group of hu­mans to have evolved in iso­la­tion for more than 10,000 years. Dis­tinctly dif­fer­ent from main­land Abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture, the Palawa did not record their his­tory — in­stead it is writ­ten in the land­scape. www.wukali­nawalk.com.au.
