Setting the scene:

It is a time before white man lived in Australia… A time when the land and the people were one, an exhilarating time when aboriginal people cared for the land in clans, looking after each other. They cared for the land that provided everything and in return the land looked after them. It is the time, after, “The Dreamtime…”
 

Aim:

This is truly an amazing experience, where participants will become part of an Aboriginal Band journeying through the Grampians for a Clan gathering where they will perform dances, songs or art of their own journey.
