@ Killara

Join John Murray, Yorta Yorta and Dhuduroa descendant, for a morning of cultural insights on the banks of the Kiewa river.

John will lead a hands-on morning where you will participate in a smoking ceremony, help create a Bora ground for cultural activities, and hear the story of the scar tree at the site.

Where: Kiewa river, meet at the Killara picnic area carpark.

What to expect: You will be walking on natural, unpaved and possibly uneven surfaces. Once we reach the site, we will be using rake-hoes to create the Bora ground – you might like to bring gloves.

What to bring: BYO water bottle, gardening gloves, wear closed shoes and long pants, and dress for the weather.

Weather watch: This walk will go ahead unless there are floods, thunderstorms or heavy rain predicted.
