For countless millennia, Aboriginal Australians have relied on bush tucker as a fundamental means of sustenance. Bush tucker encompasses a diverse array of indigenous Australian plants that bear edible fruits, seeds, nuts, and more. These plants, each holding ceremonial or cultural importance, have played a significant role in Aboriginal society. 

Our bush tucker workshops offer a comprehensive understanding of various native plants, including their preparation, consumption, and medicinal applications. Participants will gain valuable insights into bush survival techniques and delve into the ancestral practices and meanings associated with these methods.

Our Didgeridoo workshop aims to familiarize males of all ages with the didgeridoo and its rich history. We offer teachings on the importance of this instrument and how our ancestors utilized it for various purposes. During the workshop, participants will have the chance to choose their own didgeridoo, learn how to play and practice, and even personalize their instrument with paint and symbols. Each individual will be able to keep their didgeridoo as a treasured keepsake.

Smoking ceremony is a traditional practice of the Aboriginal people that involves the burning of native plants to create smoke. This smoke is utilized to purify the surroundings and provide protection against negative spirits, both for individuals and the land. 

At openings and special events, we conduct smoking ceremonies to bestow success upon individuals and companies. When participating in a smoking ceremony, it is important to stand in the smoke to cleanse the past and welcome a brighter future. 

Discover our Welcome Package! It includes a Welcome to Country, Smoking Ceremony, and a Didgeridoo Performance, all available at a fixed price. For an enhanced experience, you can also choose to include Aboriginal dancers. For inquiries, please visit our website or email us at info@gumaraa.com.au.
