Explore Sydney Harbour through Indigenous eyes on board Tribal Warrior’s Mari Nawi. The cruise takes visitors to Clark Island (Be-lang-le-wool), where you’ll learn about traditional fishing methods, food gathering techniques and enjoy a vibrant Aboriginal cultural performance.
During the cruise, the Mari Nawi’s Aboriginal crew will share fascinating stories of Sydney Harbour’s Gadigal, Guringai, Wangal, Gammeraigal and Wallumedegal people, explaining the local indigenous names of significant landmarks. Attendees can also join the weaving workshop on-board and create their own Indigenous-inspired work.
This event is suitable for all ages (children from 4+years), but please consider the agility of those in your group when booking.
