Cultural and Theme Tours

Journey the Dreaming is an Aboriginal cultural walking tour, drawing on 40,000 years of life in Central Australia.

Join our knowledgeable guide, Alison Furber Kngwarre, for an experience of the natural and cultural environment of Alice Springs. ‘Kngwarre’ is Alison’s inherited Aboriginal skin name, which determines cultural responsibilities within the traditional family system.

A local of Alice Springs, Alison has returned to live on her ancestral homelands, just North of the town, to maintain and strengthen her connection to country.
