Event planners can choose from the following collection of Aboriginal cultural experiences, adding impact to any event. It is possible to create a single event that incorporates all experiences, allowing large delegations to interact with each experience by rotating as smaller groups.

Here is just a taste of the types of Indigenous experiences available. For a full list of Indigenous experience contact our Business Events Sales Team.

Dot Painting Workshop

Dot Painting

Join our Anangu artists for a fun introduction to Western Desert Art. Your Anangu artists and workshop host will provide an introduction to Anangu culture and show how it is expressed in artworks. Groups are joined by an artist to complete individual paintings, which are taken home as a memento or often framed along with the work of other participants on the office wall.

Punu Woodcarving Workshops

With skill and patience, the limited resources of the desert have yielded highly efficient weapons and tools of survival, as well as being beautifully crafted representations of the desert fauna. Have the unique opportunity to learn how the carvings are made and try your own skills out. Groups have the option of burning the ancient symbols depicting creation stories into a wooden board or carving a pair of music sticks.

Traditional Tool & Bush Medicine Demonstrations

Learn about how traditional tools were made and what they were used for. Test your skills and balance, join us on a bowl or spear throwing session. Or have senior Anangu ladies invite you and your delegates to learn about the use and production of traditional bush medicine. Great for team building activities.

Inma Welcome to Country Traditional Song & Dance

In Anangu culture, the art of dance is reserved for a very small number of special events and is therefore rarely seen. During the performance, senior Anangu men and women share with you their traditional song and dance or Inma. Every move and sound is rich with ancient meaning. Clapping sticks create an infectious rhythm accented by the chanting of traditional song. Ochre-painted bodies dance towards the crowd, bringing ancient stories to life. It is recommended that the Inma be considered as a special welcome or opening for your event.

Bush Tuck Tasting & Reptile Tour

Showcasing the traditional bush food of Central Australia, you Aboriginal host will walk you through country and learn how the local people lived in such a hot desert climate surviving on a variety of bush plants and animals. Taste a selection of bush foods, grind native seeds and have the opportunity to talk with your Aboriginal host about desert life. Meet the reptiles and learn about these amazing creatures that roam the desert landscape.

Expressed through ‘Mani-Mani’, the local art form of storytelling, this contemporary Indigenous performance brings to life the ancient ancestral beings Walawuru the Wedge-Tailed Eagle and his two wives; Kaanka the black crow and Kakalyalya the white cockatoo. Walawuru is happy with his two wives but little does he know Kaanka is evil and very jealous of the kind and caring Kakalyalya. The word ‘Mani-Mani’ comes from the Yankunytjatjara & Pitjantjatjara language of the Anangu people of Central Australia. Anangu people would often tell stories by drawing symbols in the sand using a stick taken from a branch of the Mani-Mani tree. The stories were often about ancestors, real events in history and the Tjukurpa creation time.
