Tours on Taungurung Country

January 11, 2023

The Taungurung Land and Waters Council (TLaWC) is developing a Cultural Experiences brand that will provide locals with the opportunity to connect with passionate Taungurung leaders and the story of the Taungurung Nation.

Ten proud Taungurung people successfully completed the first Taungurung Cultural Tour Guide Program in March 2022.

The three-week program delivered in partnership with tourism industry experts, covered the basics of managing safe and enjoyable visitor experiences and provided the guides confidence in telling their personal stories of culture.

The guides learned storytelling techniques from other guides in the industry and participated in hands-on cultural learning on Taungurungg Country. A strong focus and purpose behind their tourism experiences is the opportunity for intergenerational learning.

This program was the first step in creating a Taungurung-led culturally safe space for Taungurung youth and Elders to come together to consolidate knowledge and gain confidence in sharing stories of culture with guests.

Nagambie, with its rich cultural heritage and natural assets, will feature in one of the first tours set to launch later this year.

Taungurung guides look forward to developing relationships with the wider community across Nagambie and surrounds – connecting them more deeply with the cultural stories of the places they live and work.

Tourism is the opportunity to create a welcoming space for both Taungurung guides and guests to meet up. be themseves, have genuine conversations and celebrate the vibrancy of Taungurung hiving cułture and Country.
