DESCRIPTION

Experience a traditional Welcome to Country and Acknowledgment of Country at the Spirit of the Red Sands in Beenleigh. Book this 90 minute interactive theatrical tour for a first-hand experience of the world’s oldest living country – the only experience that brings you up close and personal with the Aboriginal culture of Australia in the Gold Coast.

This cultural experience will allow you to feel the Dreamtime and learn of the traditional customs, cultures and languages of Indigenous Australia. Come along to learn about the 60,000 years of storytelling, dance and more. Participants will be guided by an elder through the village and go through a soul-cleansing smoking ceremony, learn and carry the message stick of acceptance and witness the sounds of the didgeridoo, ancient chants, dance and songs of the land.
