The Rocks Dreaming Aboriginal Heritage Tour

Be touched by the most ancient human culture on earth in a 90-minute leisurely walkabout with an Aboriginal guide in The Rocks, and journey into DreamTime, the culture of Aboriginal People.

The tour is 100 per cent Aboriginal-owned. It was developed by Margret Campbell, a Dunghutti-Jerrinjah woman and is led by Aboriginal guides who have permission to share her knowledge. The tour gives you the opportunity to discover how the ancient Aboriginal dreaming is still alive within the modern Sydney landscape and how the billion-year old harbour, marine environment, sandstone strata, waterways, flora and fauna influenced how Aboriginal people lived in the area.
