2 Hour Morning Cruise
Just a short hop upstream we’ll stop at Darngku Heritage Cruise’s own bush clearing in the serenity of the Larawan area and boil the billy over a fire. Once we’ve all got a billy tea or coffee, the fun really starts. Your guide will introduce you to the fascinating world of traditional law, including the complex kinship and marriage rules, with guests role-playing to get a real understanding of the way it works. Before we get back on the boat you’ll also enjoy a hands-on bush medicine experience, learning how the local people find, prepare and make use of the plants around the area. On the way back you’ll hear more about the local plants and animals and the important part they play in the lives of the Bunuba people, and your guide will tell you Dreamtime stories that relate the beginning of the world in Bunuba terms.
