Fantasea Cruising has partnered with Tribal Warrior to bring you a new and unique Aboriginal Sky Dreaming experience on Sydney Harbour.

1 hour Cruise departing from Darling Harbour at 6pm & Circular Quay at 6:20pm for a limited time only during the Sydney Solstice.

Join us for a 1hr cruise departing from Darling Harbour & Circular Quay and learn about Garwarrgay – The Emu in the Sky which is one of Australia’s most famous dark constellations, holding special meaning for Aboriginal Australians.

The First Nations cultures of Australia – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders – speak over 250 distinct languages and stretch ba ck for over 65,000 years. This makes the First Australians the oldest astronomers and the oldest continuing cultures in the world.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people developed a number of practical ways to observe the Sun, Moon and stars to inform navigation, calendars, and predict weather.

It serves as the foundation for narratives that are passed down the generations through song, dance, and oral tradition over tens of thousands of years.

An Aboriginal astronomer will guide you through the cruise and share their stories of land, water and sky which have been passed down by Aboriginal ancestors.
