Cultural Knowledge & Education through Learning & Understanding

Join Uncle Ken Jones for a wander around swamp gum habitat, grasslands and coastlines.

Our specially tailored education sessions aimed to develop participant’s skills in identifying a cultural landscape and their heritage features, recording and assessing their cultural significance and contributing to conservation and management.  Through on-ground field vistis, inland or coastal, the sessions provide knowledge of bush tukka, tradition, artifacts, ceremonies and art and crafts.

Ken encourages participants to acknowledge Boandik Country and re-sect our people of the reeds and rushes, elders past and present and their cultural traditions.

Personalised Cultural Experience

 

Port MacDonnell is the most southerly town of South Australia and from here it’s only a shirt 5,700 kilometres to Antarctica. A holiday favourite for locals and visitors alike, ‘Port Mac’ is surrounded by stunning coastal beauty and is also home to South Australia’s largest lobster fishing fleet.

Join Uncle Ken Jones, local Boandik Elder, on a foraging journey to identify, touch and taste some of the finest bush foods along the incredible Port McDonnell coastline.

You’ll be surprised by the incredible flavours that are growing right in front of you as you explore nature’s own supermarket.

You’ll also take a look into nature’s chemist and discover coastal bush medicines that were used by the Boandik people many years ago. You’ll never look at a humble plant in the same way again! Be inspired and discover natural artwork along the way, and regain your appreciation for mother nature and the beauty she creates.

Learn local legends and stories along the way, including the magnificent ‘Sunken Forest’ tale.

Ken will also share with you some of the local Boandik language along the way!
