A very special chance for you to breathe easier!
Join us on board this relaxing cultural weekend celebrating 30 years of Aboriginal Tours at Ngaut Ngaut Conservation Park, along with the growing success of the River Murray International Dark Sky Reserve.
This is your chance to spend more quality time with Ngangaraku people Ivy Campbell and her family, as they yarn around the bonfire sharing their famous homecooked kangaroo stew.
You'll be treated to a special Dark Sky Astronomy experience at the clifftop at Kroehn's Landing, across from a sacred site at Wongulla as the Marne River flows into the Mighty Murray.
Enjoy the sunrise reflections from your bedroom window, and the early birdsong as you wake to a morning yoga session.
Then another chance to linger longer with Ivy and her family as they lead you through your own dot painting and jewellery making session.
A lovely afternoon lunch at Bowhill Store, before returning to your unique accommodation for a native inspired dinner.
Check out from your accommodation Sunday morning and relax back into your normal life.
