The Dharug people are Parramatta’s first people and its traditional custodians. Parramatta's name comes from their words meaning "the place of eels". The eels, symbol of Parramatta, still thrive in the Parramatta River.
Join an Aboriginal custodian in this interactive workshop, where you will have the opportunity to uncover the cultural significance of local plants and animals, and discover the basics of a traditional cultural practice.
Weather permitting, participants will assist in painting temporary artworks, in natural ochres, on beautiful smooth-barked eucalyptus trees along the river.
This program is suitable for adults and families.
Bookings are essential.
