NAIDOC Waranara First Nations tours

Join us for a special free NAIDOC session of our Waranara First Nations tour!

Our people have been here for over 60,000 years and are made up of hundreds of Nations with different languages, customs, beliefs and adornments. The Australian Museum displays thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural objects that tell the story of these Nations’ beauty, complexity and diversity.

We invite you on a journey through the cultures, history and objects of this land’s First Peoples.

A member of our First Nations team will guide you through the First Australians galleries, Bayala Nura and Garrigarrang, weaving in personal stories of their own Country, culture and experiences.

Tour highlights

It is important to understand the land that you’re on. Be greeted by our First Nations staff member and pay respects to the traditional owners.

Nations and languages
