The Wuddi Culture Centre offer a few different tours:

DJILGI DREAMING | YABBIE FARM TOUR

This freshwater crustacean was once abundant in Lake Dumbleyung and was traditionally cooked over open coals. Extensive land clearing and the resulting rise in the lake’s salinity has all but wiped out the local supply of the Djilgi from Lake Dumbleyung. A local enterprising farming family now farm the yabbie commercially. Travel in air-conditioned comfort on our 12 seater tour bus and visit the farm and see the operations, purchase local gourmet products and sample these freshwater delicacies.
