About our Experiences

Image

wawa biik Taungurung Cultural Experiences are about generating greater respect for the Taungurung story – a resilient story that spans thousands of years.  Our experiences inspire deeper connections, learnings, and reflections, that will inspire us all to care more about the future of our Culture and biik (Country).

Meet passionate Taungurung guides who share traditional and contemporary cultural practices.  Understand life of our Ancestors and learn what being a Custodian of biik means for us today as we walk through important areas of biik together.

We celebrate the small moments of connection with and on biik.

We will also yarn with you about all the work we do on biik as a mob to keep biik and Culture strong for the next generation – this includes protecting cultural heritage, regeneration works and cultural practice. We will introduce you to wawa biik’s partners, who are as determined as we are to care for biik and contribute to our positive future.

Our Humble Promise

We’re passionate, so we might just talk all day.

We’re proud, so we might share more stories than you’d expect.

We’re courageous, so we will try speaking our language which we are reviving.

We’re approachable, so we’ll create a safe and welcoming space for us all to learn and grow together.

We’re protective of Country so we’ll tread lightly and leave no trace.

We are honoured that you have chosen to share this journey with us.

What is ICIP (Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property)?

Tourism is all about sharing stories and knowledge with visitors. However, when it comes to sharing cultural stories or knowledge (through tourism or art or other forms of expression), there are limitations and cultural protocols that need to be understood and respected by both Taungurung People and those engaging with the content being shared.

What an adventure! The wawa biik team delves into the highlights of our first year of operation.

February 2024 marks our wawa biik one year anniversary. One year on and we’ve been having a laugh about all the funny moments; thinking back to all the great yarns with our friendly guests and reflecting on the honour of being out on Country doing what we love. It’s no secret that running a successful tourism business is hard work at times and we have overcome some challenges in the past year.
