Tour of Maiyingu Marragu Cultural Site (4 hours)
Embark on a very special bushwalking experience to explore the Maiyingu Marragu Rock Art and Cultural Site located on the Newnes Plateau above the Wolgan Valley.
The site includes culturally significant rock shelters and stencil-art produced from red, white and yellow ochres. The images depict many hands, a hatchet, a boomerang, as well as human figures. This special place is filled with an aesthetic ambience and dramatic natural beauty. The cliffs, overhangs and natural features of this beautiful site hold special meaning to Wiradjuri people and contains sacred places reserved for important life events, such as childbirth. Maiyingu Marragu provides a direct physical and spiritual link to ancestors and a place where traditional culture can be maintained.
The area is extremely fragile and is sacred to the Mingaan Wiradjuri people. In the spirit of Yindyamarra and respect for the cultural values of the Wiradjuri community, we strongly discourage people from visiting this sacred place unless they are accompanied by an approved representative from the Wiradjuri community.
The tour involves 30 minutes 4WD travel time each way and approximately 2.5 to 3 hours of walking to explore the various places at the site. Covered footwear suitable for bushwalking (hiking shoes or boots) is required as well as outdoor clothing suitable to the weather conditions. A hat and sun protection are recommended. A moderate level of fitness is essential, as some walking over steep and uneven ground is required. Includes morning or afternoon tea at the site. Open to all ages, but not suitable for prams. A
strict 24-hour cancellation policy of 100% applies for this tour.
$950 per tour (up to 6 guests)
