Coming to all regions across Australia.

Our culture is dynamic and ever-evolving. Join us as we learn about the local legends at Wollombi Aboriginal Cultural Experience. Our Elders have told us the origin stories of our Ngurrumpa (camp world). These stories, far from being’myth,’ teach us how to be and interact with the world around us. Aborigines traveled long distances for trade, social interplay, and ceremonial purposes to Wollombi for millennia.

Mount Yengo, which is as sacred to the people of the East as Uluru is to the people of the Centre, was and continues to be the focal point of these ceremonial gatherings at Wollombi Aboriginal Cultural Experience. Afterlife was created and the Lore was established, Baiame, one of the primary creative forces, stepped back into the skyworld from Yengo’s summit. Baiame’s final act was to carve the Lore into stone to preserve it for future generations. We’d like to tell you a little bit about the history of these engraving locations.

To get to Finchley Trig and the Map Site at Wollombi Aboriginal Cultural Experience, our morning tours leave Wollombi Cultural Centre at 9:00 a.m. Find out how Mt Yengo came to be and why the Aboriginal people of New South Wales regard it as sacred as Uluru is to the people of the central desert. Proceed to the Map Site and spend a couple of hours discovering local legends. At 12:30 p.m., return to Wollombi.

What exactly should I have with me?

We recommend bringing a small backpack filled with snacks, water, sunblock, and a hat for the hike. If it’s going to rain, make sure you have appropriate clothing. We encourage you to bring a camera because there will be numerous photo opportunities throughout the day.
