Be touched by the most ancient human culture on earth in a 90-minute leisurely walkabout with an Aboriginal guide in The Rocks, Sydney and journey into Dreamtime, the culture of Aboriginal People and legends of how their land was created.

Get inspired as you discover the oldest ecology, conservation, sustainability, astrology and spiritual beliefs on earth today. Connect with Australian skies, lands, waters, and the experiences of 'always walking Country'. Feel empowered by learning how to teach others to navigate Dreamtime pathways, whenever in the city or out in the bush.

The Rocks Dreaming Tour was developed by Aboriginal Elder Margret Campbell and is led by Aboriginal guides who have permission to share these amazing stories.

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.

You will love this experience! Great for the whole family, locals and visitors.
