This morning we’ll rise early and meet Uncle Dean for a sunrise ceremony on the beach, before returning to our hotel for breakfast.
After breakfast, we’ll engage with an inspiring woman for a very open and honest discussion about Aboriginal perspectives of invasion, frontier wars, loss of land, reserves and missions and the stolen generations.
This conversation will take place over a hands-on traditional weaving class in which we’ll create bracelets, bookmarks, necklaces or rope using raffia, feathers and beads.
After lunch you’ll have time to relax before we venture out to Florence Head walking trail. This easy walk features a variety of vegetation types, including mallee gum trees, heath plants and sedges. Keep your eyes out along the way for local kangaroos, wallabies and an array of bird life, such as honeyeaters, wrens and colourful parrots.
Once we arrive at Florence Head lookout, we’ll have an early dinner and cook up while taking in the incredible views of Pigeon House Mountain.
