Guwanyi Walama: Aboriginal Perspectives of Bennelong Point – On Demand Tour (28 May – 11 June 2024) (Stage 2, Stage 3)

On Demand

Join us for an exploration of the Indigenous history of Tubowgule (Bennelong Point), the site where Sydney Opera House sits & the rich & important meaning of this place.


On Demand tour available 28 May – 11 June 2024

This On Demand version of our 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, including the fishing rites, oyster beds, and the connection between the Gadigal people and the land of Tubowgule.

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.
