Culture & Adventure
After breakfast start your day with a light (optional) stretch, before turning your focus to today’s theme- Indigenous culture- Lead by a local Aboriginal Guide. You will begin by walking through a smoking ceremony before setting out to explore Millarvale Creek in more detail.
Along the way, the Indigenous guide will show you demonstrations with significant plants, rocks and other elements of nature that are still in the Scenic Rim today, that the Aboriginal tribes of yesteryear would have relied on to survive.
Knowledge handed down to generation after generation over 50,000 years will be passed on to you by your Indigenous guide. You will learn how to view the landscape through the eyes of a hunter-gatherer, searching for bush tucker and medicinal plants. With an open mind, you will discover new things and push your boundaries.
You will see a new side of the Scenic Rim region today, being at a lower altitude, you’ll discover a different variety of plant and animal species including wallabies and a wide range of birds, that your guides will be pointing out along the way.
It is only a half-day walk today so you will be back at Spicers Canopy to enjoy lunch of home-made wood-fired pizzas. Sit on the deck with a glass of wine, or inside next to the open log fire with a nice hot beverage.
During the afternoon, your Indigenous guide will lead workshops on how to create traditional Aboriginal instruments, art pieces, and provide insight into the correct way to throw spears & boomerangs. There will also be a chance for you to discover during the afternoon, some historical relics from the Indigenous people in a static display which will include historically significant items such as weapons, traditional dress and instruments.
Later in the afternoon, join the group back at the main lodge for another delectable chef-prepared themed meal with a focus on food from the land.
After dinner, take a seat around the fire as our Indigenous Guide takes you on a journey through the Dreamtime and you discover the traditional stories and beliefs of the Indigenous people of the region and their ties to the Scenic Rim Region while toasting marshmallows.
