Getting ready for the next wonderful Sunset Paddle and Walk on Country Tour at Ganguddy, in collaboration with Wirimbili Cultural Experience this Saturday.
On this tour we'll be joined by a guide from the Dabee people of the Wiradjuri nation, who will provide information about the food sources the river provides, the Aboriginal history of the area, and gaining an understanding into how we can all care for our rivers, as well as identifying some of the abundant native flora and fauna and explaining its significance and traditional use in medicine and bush tucker. We also enjoy a tasty treat, featuring native ingredients.
We're constantly amazed by the things we learn on these tours about the oldest living culture on our planet, from local traditional custodians who have an awe inspiring depth of knowledge and generosity of spirit.
This is a unique experience and there is still time to book a spot on the tour - we'd love to see you there.
Do you know that camping bookings are now site specific at Ganguddy-Dunns Swamp Campground, in the Wollemi National Park? The campsites are now numbered, so select your favourite site when you make your booking.
Bookings are essential, and as there is no internet or mobile phone coverage at Ganguddy, bookings need to be made, and confirmation downloaded to your phone before you head out there.
The new system worked well over the summer, with most visitors giving positive feedback on being able to pre-select a site.
We've enjoyed watching this family of Willy Wagtails at Ganguddy-Dunns Swamp over the summer holidays.
The nest is so neat, and economical. It's just large enough for the adults to balance on top of the eggs with their chests, head and tail sticking out each side. It's not long before the young grow out of it too!
It's branch hangs out over the water - hope the first flights are good ones!
