Twilight tour of Franklin’s indigenous heritage

johnboy 13 May 2013

TAMS are letting us know there’s a twilight stroll through Gubur Dhaura coming up:

Immerse yourself in Canberra’s Ngunnawal culture and enjoy an autumn sunset with a twilight stroll through Gubur Dhaura in Franklin on Friday 17 May at 4pm.

“Gubur Dhaura means ‘red ochre’ in Ngunnawal language, and this is a great opportunity to hear how my people used this ancient ochre site thousands of years ago, and see how we have developed it for all to enjoy today,” said Adrian Brown, Ngunnawal Country Ranger with the ACT Parks and Conservation Service.

“Enjoy the panoramic views as I, and some of the other Murumbung Yurung Murra Rangers, talk about the history of the site and its connection to the pathways of the Ngunnawal people and neighbouring nations.

“The walking track at Gubur Dhaura is very short and suitable for all fitness levels, but be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes and bring your own drinking water. You may also like to bring a fold up chair to sit and enjoy the panoramic views as we talk about the cultural landscape and watch the palate of colours as the sun goes down.

Bookings by 5pm Wednesday 15 May on 6207 0078
