TOURS

Schools Educational Program
Cave Hill 1 Day Aboriginal Experience

Tour Information

Desert Tracks is wholly owned and operated by the Pitjantjatjara People of Central Australia. Established in 1988 as a cross-cultural tour to the homeland of Angatja, Nganyinytja's country. The tours have since expanded to encompass several other homeland destinations. Private Charters and Group Tours to suit are available.

Join this once in a lifetime exclusive invitation to visit the remote Pitjantjatjara Lands and Musgrave Ranges for a cultural immersion experience exploring the Aboriginal Songline stories of the creation ancestors. With your Anangu guides, enjoy the beauty and serenity of the arid desert environment to see how work, song, dance, story telling and art are truly integrated in a living culture that is many thousands of years old.

Schools Educational Program

Desert Tracks currently conducts 8 Day Educational Programs for Schools from Victoria and New South Wales. Read some testimonials here.

Desert Tracks operates Educational school programmes and the experience gained from these programmes address many curriculum based objectives for all Australian students. The aims of these programmes include promoting understanding and learning through participation. Learning about Tjurkurpa "creation time" in the context of traditional lands is a major aspect of the experience, combined with the sharing of knowledge and cultural identity from our Anangu teachers to the students and participating in traditional Aboriginal activities such as food collection and tracking.

Depart by 4w/d through bush tracks directly south of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park through the arid desert and into the Pitjantjatjara Lands. We will be met by our Anangu hosts and teachers at Cave Hill, the site of the Seven Sisters Tjukurpa.

This Songline crosses the width and breadth of the Australian continent.

The main feature is the magnificent cave paintings—possibly the most significant art site in Central Australia. The drama of the Seven Sisters creation story is graphically illustrated on the ceiling of the cave. Discuss Tjukurpa (dreaming) and learn about the Songlines and its relevance to Anangu life in the Desert.
