An interactive tour of Tubowgule (Bennelong Point)
This oral history from the Aboriginal perspective will have students imagining this iconic Sydney place from creation time and the ancestral spirits who formed the landscape, to pre-settlement and the arrival of the First Fleet.
Students will learn about the daily life of the clan that inhabited Sydney Cove, the changes that came with the arrival of Governor Phillip and the first settlers, and the fascinating story of the man called Bennelong.
