Warami Mittigar- Aboriginal Cultural Walk MONDAY'S | Monday, 03. February 2020

This easy walk, along the river and in beautiful Parramatta Park, is a wonderful opportunity to spend time on country with an Aboriginal traditional custodian, learning about connections to land, plant uses, tools, hunting and other aspects of local culture.

The Darug are Parramatta’s first people and the traditional custodians of this land. Parramatta’s name comes from the Darug word “burramatta”, meaning “the place of eels”.   On this tour you will discover the significance of eels in Darug culture.

In the case of rain or otherwise adverse weather, the activity will become an interactive cultural presentation in the Heritage Centre. Should the weather improve, a shorter walk will take place.

This tour is suitable for adults and families. The route is partly along unfenced waterways and shared pathways. Carers must supervise any younger children, who must be able to keep up with the pace of the group.

Bookings are essential. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time, for registration. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring water, snack and a hat.
