Enhance your Indigenous cultural experience with activities
that offer a taste of traditional Wangkatha life.
For more than 40,000 years the Wangkatha people have inhabited and been sustained by the land around Morapoi Station.
The Wangkatha know their country better than anyone and can share the region’s abundant natural features, indigenous heritage, dreaming stories, bush tucker and unique wildlife, as well as hidden treasures and local historic sites.
We have structured a range of informative and engaging activities that give visitors a rare insight into this ancient culture. Some of these activities are subject to weather conditions. Bush tucker tours and honey ant tours are seasonal, so please enquire with the tour organisers about tour times and availability.
We offer tours catering to a wide range of needs. These include:
Discover the abundance of bush fruits and medicinal plants that grow in the Outback, including bush tomatoes, bush pears, plants with paracetamol-like properties and other medicinal values. Try bush delicacies like Witchetty grubs (cooked or live) and the sweet nectar filled body of the honey ant.
INDIGENOUS CULTURAL TRAIL
Follow your Indigenous guide on a walk trail through desert scrub and discover an assortment of plants that were of importance to the Wangkatha people. See some traditional structures (mia-mia) and campsites. Learn about the traditional people’s connection to the land, their history, bush tucker and shelter.
Try your luck at prospecting. Morapoi Station is set amongst the heart of the Goldfields, and while they are small, there is nearly always a find on prospecting tours. The region is also rich in history and finds often include relics from the Goldrush days.
