Guwanyi Walama: Aboriginal Perspectives of Bennelong Point – Interactive Tour (Stage 2, Stage 3)

  28-Jun-2023      02:00PM
Live Event

Students join our Indigenous tour guides for an interactive exploration of the Indigenous history of Tubowgule (Bennelong Point), the site on which Sydney Opera House sits.


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.


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Sydney Opera House
