Indigenous Cultural Workshops
North Stradbroke Island is rich with Aboriginal history and culture, which is believed to be one of the oldest living cultures today. The workshops are suitable for all ages and can be tailored to your group’s needs, covering everything from bush medicines to fire making and learning how to throw a traditional “come-back” boomerang.
