Way Outback

Way Outback tour bus came in this afternoon. Very cosmopolitan again today. Lovely people who really enjoyed their time with Manuel, who they thought was amazing, helpful and very happy. Everyone fell in love with our resident wallabies. Yams were the flavour of the day and some beauties were painted. We got a fire lit and Big Red was hit.

School time

Yesterday we had a school from Darwin come in and learn about aboriginal culture and cuddle some of our new and not so new baby wallabies. The paintings were amazing(must of been because of their teacher!!!) They got a fire lit and four hits with the spear. Well done every one. We enjoyed your company. They then went off to camp and have some more learning and fun experience with Tom Curtain at Katherine Outback Experience. After all the fun of two sessions with the school kids Manuel still had to entertain a Way outback tour bus of 14 tourist from all over the world later in the afternoon. He is amazing and you can see he just loves doing what he is doing, teaching the world about his culture.

Great day.” the Kenworthy family wrote. “Thank you for a lovely afternoon. The painting was very relaxing and we enjoyed listening to Manuel’s stories. The kids enjoyed feeding the wallaby.”
