Ngaut Ngaut immerse yourself in
Aboriginal Dreaming and Culture at one of the State’s most significant
aboriginal cultural sites. The Nganguraku people will welcome you to where
Aboriginals have lived in the Devon Downs (Ngaut Ngaut) rock shelter for at
least 5000 years.  Australia’s first archaeological excavation, carried
out by Norman Tindale, showed 12 living layers and three separate cultural
stages on the site which can be viewed via the Ngaut Ngaut boardwalk which
meanders around the ancient riverside cliffs. You will visit the birthplace of
the ‘Black Duck Dreaming’ and your guided tour portrays the rock art,
excavation and cultural sites on top of the cliffs. This experience will challenge
perceptions of Aboriginal culture and leave you in awe of the resourcefulness
of Australia’s Indigenous People.



Big Bend Cliffs are a natural wonder which must be seen
to be believed.  The cliffs are known
as the tallest cliffs and the longest single bend along the entire length of
the Murray River. Your tour takes the ferry across the river on a journey of
discovery by road where views of the Big Bend Cliffs will take your breath
away.  A popular nesting ground for
cockatoos and plentiful wildlife, this farming district also has its own story
to tell.

for you to join in the fun.
