Taronga launches Nura Diya Aboriginal Wildlife Experience
Taronga Zoo has launched a new Aboriginal wildlife tour, showcasing the strong link between aboriginal people, their culture and wildlife.
Developed with Aboriginal people, and led by an Aboriginal Guide, Nura Diya takes visitors on a walk-through introduction to Australia's wildlife presenting an indigenous perspective set to the stunning backdrop of Sydney Harbour.
Aboriginal Education Officer, Natasha Mooney, explain "the opportunity to educate people about the oldest living culture on earth, including native wildlife that has evolved with it, is very exciting. Taronga's wildlife conservation goals are closely linked to Aboriginal traditions of caring for country."
The small tour groups will provide intimate photo opportunities with many native animals such as kangaroos, echidnas, wallabies and emus. The tour runs for two hours each morning and includes morning tea at the Harbourview Café
Mooney adds "mornings are a very special time at Taronga as all the animals are awake and active, busy eating their breakfast and exploring their exhibits."
Taronga Zoo is located on traditional Cammeraigal County and acknowledges the Cammeraigal people, their Country, spirit and traditions as customary owners of the land.
• Tour departs daily at 9.45am
