Jingi Walla – Welcome to Arakwal Bundjalung Country
We invite you to join us on a special Aboriginal tour at Cape Byron, Bangalow or Broken Head. Our tours are guided by Delta Kay, an Arakwal Bundjalung woman who is passionate about sharing Aboriginal culture. Delta is well known and respected as an Arakwal elder in the Byron Shire. Her ancestors have lived in the area surrounding Byron for thousands of years and Arakwal customs, knowledge, ceremonies and stories have been passed down to her for safe keeping.
During tours, guests can expect to hear about Aboriginal existence before colonisation, including how Arakwal people cared for and preserved the land. Delta also explains the devastating impact of settlement and displacement on her people and how her family eventually negotiated their Native Title.
Delta teaches some Bundjalung language and provides information about local bush tucker, natural medicine, tools, weapons and artefacts. At the end of each tour, guests enjoy tasting a variety of delicious bush tucker foods and have nice cup of bush tea and a biscuit.
We offer a free pick-up and drop-off services for guests within 6km of the Byron Bay CBD. If you would like to use this service, please provide your pick-up address when you make your booking. Alternatively, if you provide your own transport, you will find us at the designated meeting place for your tour.
