The tour departs from the Aboriginal Elders Council, St John St, Launceston, Tasmania.

Rate includes all meals, beverages, use of jackets, gaiters, backpack (if required), time with Elders and Parks entry.

 

Background

The wukalina Walk is a project of the Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania and is operated by palawa Enterprises Trust.  The Trust is managed by a seven-member independent Board.

The wukalina Walk is the first of its kind in Australia - designed, owned and operated by the Aboriginal community.  The purpose of the walk is to deliver a cultural experience that deepens understanding of palawa culture and community, while showcasing the natural beauty of the wukalina and Bay of Fires / larapuna areas.

palawa people are the only group of humans to evolve in isolation for 10,000 years.  Their culture and language are distinctively different from mainland Aboriginal cultures, both in traditional times and since European occupation. Contemporary palawa culture is most strongly tied to this part of Tasmania, which incorporates the Furneaux Islands.
