Description

The Cultural Centre operate culturally themed tours that range from bushfood tasings, to walking tours of the region’s important Aboriginal sites. Wuddi Cultural Centre is a place that offers a warm welcome and a surprising insight into the Aboriginal history of the region. 

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.

EMU DREAMING | EMU FARM TOUR

The ‘weitj’ (emu) was prized by the local Aboriginal people of the Dumbleyung area, Learn about the various hunting techniques traditionallly employed by the Wilman people to hunt this important source of food and how they were first to recognise the medicinal properties of emu oil. Travel in air-conditioned comfort on our 12 seater tour bus and visit an emu farm and see these majestic birds up close, learn about how emu oil is used today in pharmaceuticals & cosmetics and have the opportunity to purchase products direct from the farm.

LAKE DUMBLEYUNG & SIGNIFICANT SITES 

Travel in air-conditioned comfort on our 12 seater tour bus and visit gnamma holes (secret water holes), tribal corroboree grounds, ancient hunting grounds including Lake Dumbleyung, a place with a rich Aboriginal history. This body of water was once a significant source of food and water for the Wilman people of the region, attracting birdlife, wildlife, fish and yabbies. Now a saltwater lake due to land clearing, the lake is no less spectacular when full, attracting black swans and a multitude of birdlife. As you will discover on this tour, the spiritual and cultural connections that the region’s first people share with this place are still very much alive.

BUSHFOOD GARDEN EXPERIENCE

The short 45 minute Bushfood Experience is a relaxing way to end an On Country walking tour or bus tour. it also works well a stand alone introduction to traditional bushfoods. Relax in our sunken bushfood garden, roast quandong nuts over the fire as we yarn about local Wilman history and the traditional Aboriginal lifestyle of the region’s first people. Sample traditional bushfoods, some with a modern twist like emu pate, quandong jam and bush damper washed down with a calming cup of lemon myrtle and native strawberry tea.
