Mungalla Aboriginal Tours

Multiple Locations

The history and culture of Mungalla tours begins at the grand Mungalla Station homestead where they introduce you to 45,000 years of Nywaigi Aboriginal Culture. Hear their stories and learn to throw a boomerang or spear. Then board the bus for a short trip to the original homestead site where they'll introduce you to Irish settler James Cassady and his family who were the first European settlers on Mungalla and advocated for Aboriginal people and allowed their ancestors to remain on their traditional lands. As you view the remnants of the original Mungalla site hear the pioneering stories of these settlers and let your thoughts drift back in time and consider the glory of old Mungalla.

Return to the homestead to experience the truly amazing Captive Lives story that documents the unbelievable story of Aboriginal people displayed as human curiosities throughout the circuses of Europe and America. This amazing exhibition toured nationally and was seen by over 300,000 Australians. Interact with Aboriginal people as they share this wonderful story with you.

Add their optional eco-tourism package to your tour where they show you their efforts to regenerate their wetlands and save endangered species.

Group tours a speciality.
