Wild, remote and untamed, the allure of the bush that’s something that’s somewhat indescribable. Burketown in northern Queensland is the epitome of this rawness and the epicentre for indigenous tours that explore this rugged terrain.
Yagurli Tours have exclusive access to Australia’s largest salt pans, where you can discover the brilliance of the night sky through state-of-the-art telescopes against a canvas of total darkness. A local Gangalidda guide will share Dreamtime stories and their cultural interpretation of the universe in accordance with the phases of the moon. Dubbed the ‘Plains of Promise’ by 19th-century explorers, the salt pans of the lower Gulf region are an awe-inspiring natural landscape steeped in cultural significance. This is a cultural experience not to be missed.
