  1. I like that you get to tour in a natural environment and it does look creepy enough to have the wolf of Red Riding Hood. I love seeking tours like this. Thank you for sharing!

      It was probably the most fairytale-like place I’ve ever been! Of course, I’ve not been to Germany, the origin of many of the Grimm fairy tales…

    I’m so glad you got to experience an aboriginal tour while you were here! Your guide, despite looking caucasian, would have had aborginal heritage (the colour gene dilutes but not the culture!).

    The acknowledgement speech you saw is Australia’s lacklustre acknowledgement of our indigenous people and only came about in recent years, a sorry that was too late and disengenuos – as you noticed, hardly an indigenous person or explanation in sight!

    I’ve also heard how the Maori culture is intricately woven into everyday NZ – Oz has a lot to learn from them! One of the reasons I can’t wait to visit!

      That’s what I was told later! That the gene is recessive, so his appearance is actually very common.

      When I did this road trip, I had only been to two places in Australia, Sydney and Melbourne, plus its vicinity. But I’ve since been to Cairns, and was surprised to see how different it was to the first two. Aboriginal heritage is evident in Cairns and its surrounds, and this visibility seems to be a lot less resented. I look forward to writing about these observations at some point!
