You are invited to say wawa (hello) to Taungurung Country and our passionate Taungurung guides as we reveal the rich layers of living culture embodied in the land and waterways around Nagambie – Central Victoria.
For tens of thousands of years pre-colonisation, the lush waterways of the waring (Goulburn River) and its tributaries have sustained seasonal food sources and a nourishing cultural life for the Taungurung People. Country has been profoundly changed by colonisation yet our spiritual connection and obligations to Country remain. We tell you the story of Country from past to present to future – from the way of life of our Ancestors, the resilience of our people today and the enormous challenge we face to heal Country for future generations. Visit a special part of Country home to scar trees and oven mounds, take part in a traditional Welcome Smoking Ceremony, enjoy inspiring yarns with two Taungurung guides, glide gently by boat through the beautiful wetlands of ‘tabilk-tabilk’ - known as ‘place of many waterholes.
