mumara patrula-wood

Nunami Sculthorpe-Green

Following the success of takara nipaluna (Walking Hobart), comes mumara patrula (Wood for the fire) – a new enlightening and moving walking tour by award-winning palawa and Warlpiri woman Nunami Sculthorpe-Green. Presented by Blak Led Tours Tasmania in partnership with Kingborough Council, mumara patrula is the first and only Aboriginal-authored tour available south of nipaluna/Hobart.

Grounded through stories of fire, earth and water, this guided tour uses the true stories of legendary historical Tasmanian Aboriginal figures of the region, as anchors to tell the deep and ongoing story of Aboriginal connection to this coastal landscape.

On this tour, the stories unfold as you take a gentle walk on a bush track along the coastline of Trial Bay, looking across to lunawuni (Bruny island).
