#Culturalimmersion isn’t just about wandering round #Shepparton, looking at the #paintedcows, in #Nagambie #waterskying behind a #boat. Sometimes it’s just sitting on a #smalllakeforeshore and listening to the #dreaming that created this land and watching a #damperdemonstration being #cookedovercoals. Meeting a few strangers at a #scartree and having a #conversation. Getting lost for a few hour on a easy #walkabout through local #indigenousart.
Here’s why you should take a break from the beach once in a while, and seek out a #culturalexperience on your #holiday…#Culturaltourism works both ways of course. You’ll be putting money directly into the #localeconomy, and helping #localindigenouspeople such as Nikki James running school programs providing employment for Avalon Karatau at her Airbnb or buying locally-produced goods from indigenous suppliers, rather than paying it to a mega-resort that will then take it out of the economy in a franchise.
You’re helping to #preserveAboriginalculturalheritage, whether it be a physical buildings or traditions.
