There are many ways to learn and connect with the diverse Aboriginal cultures found throughout the Murray River region, whether it's by taking a locally guided tour; exploring the galleries and attractions along the Cultural Trails, or venturing on a road trip through the World Heritage-listed national parks of Ulupna Island, Gorbram Falls, Winton Wetlands or further into Beechworth.

THE TOUR

Embark on an Enchanting Trek to Sacred Aboriginal Sites!

Discover the magic and history of Mooroopna, meaning "deep water hole," at the heart of a remarkable Cultural Landscape cherished by Aboriginal people. Scattered throughout this landscape are historical stone Milbi (caves) and ancient stone channels shaped by Yurlunggur, the rainbow serpent, hidden in the hills.

Join our guided tour to explore these awe-inspiring sites, including:

  • A 400-year-old birthing tree: A sacred space exclusively used for women's ceremonies.

  • Lava flow riverbed: Featuring canoe scar trees.

  • Freshwater inland beaches: Historically used for trapping and holding fish.

This adventure will take you through several stunning National Parks, including Chesney Vale National Park, Ulupna Island, Gooram Falls, and Yeddonba Aboriginal Cultural Site. At each location, immerse yourself in Dreamtime stories and enjoy a guided tour.

Feel the spirit of the land, Dunghala, deeply connected to the Barmah National Park. Discover 'Kanny Goopna' (Shepparton), meaning deep waterholes, where people camped and where the legend of Dunghala began.
