Experience Yolŋu culture in the heart of Arnhem Land.
Bawaka Experience offers you a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from custodians of the oldest living culture in the world.
Upon arrival to Bawaka, you will be met by senior leaders of Bawaka homeland where you will be welcomed to Country through a traditional ceremony involving buŋgul (dance ceremony) and smoking ceremony.
During your time at Bawaka, you will have a chance to partake in a number of cultural activities that are still practiced by homeland residents. These activities are heavily dependent on the weather conditions and time of year, but may include learning basic Yolŋu Matha, weaving, bush food and medicine, spear throwing, fishing and dancing.
No visit to Bawaka is complete without a visit to the famous Ŋalarrk (Lonely Beach), a short drive from Bawaka.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bawaka soon.
