Ngutana Lui - Aborignal Culture Centre

This post has been sitting in my drafts for some time now, so I figured I should get around to actually sharing it with you all.

Earlier in the year we took a large group of home schooled children to spend a day immersed in Aboriginal Culture at the educational centre - Ngutana Lui.

During that same week we were studying the Aboriginal Culture with our micro school group at home, so it was perfect timing!

Everyone got to try their hand at boomerang throwing, some of them were really very good at it too.

They had fun with ochre face paint, traditional story telling, song and dance. This was such fun and was so nice to see each and every one of them having a great time!

Of course no day spent learning about Aboriginal Culture is complete without a spot of dot painting.

Throughout the day the kids were broken into 4 groups of approximately 20 children in each. They rotated through the various workshops. A couple I didn't get the opportunity to photograph, were a bush tucker walk, where they learn and understand all about the various native foods and a hands on interactive lesson on clothing, fibres and animals.

At the end of the day everyone came together to hear the majestical sounds of the didgeridoo.

If you live in south east Queensland, I highly recommend arranging a group visit to Ngutana Lui. This was our second visit and it won't be our last. Considering it only costs a few dollars per child, it is one of the most well organised and well run educational days that we have ever attended.
