    Welcome to Ulladulla! You’ll local guide will meet you at the hotel reception at 1pm, from there you will travel a short distance for a welcome briefing and attend a Welcome to Country to pay respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians of the land, the Yuin people, and their connections to land and community. 

     

    Your afternoon will be spent with Yuin Elder, Uncle Dean Kelly, participating in a hands-on learning experience that focuses on Aboriginal tools and resources, sharing information about Aboriginal cultures, history, the environment, animals, plants, shelter, tools, weapons and sustainability.

    Day 2: Cultural Discussions and Florence Head Trek
    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.
