Fun Afternoon

We all had a great time this afternoon. Graham and Gail from Cambridge England did the CE with their son Jon and Nerida and children Bethanie and Megan. Everyone loved Manuel and why not he is very passionate about sharing his culture and makes sure everyone is having a good time. All the wallabies were a hit. The little ones loved all the cuddles and the bigger ones enjoyed getting fed lots of sweet potato.

Senevirantne Family

It was a very relaxed Cultural Experience today with a family from Melbourne. Aruna lived in Darwin as a boy and wanted his family to have a true Cultural Experience. They were very happy with Manuel saying, “Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Incredibly personal, warm and friendly. We have learnt so much! Teddy’s painting was quite the Picasco painting while Clara painted a mimi sized yam. Mum and dads yums had beautiful rarrk patterns. The kids were a delight and all had a good time trying to light the fire and hit big red. Aruna proved to be a good hunter providing kangaroo for dinner.

First AATKing Bus

Lovely morning with our first group from AATKing. We had a family from Switzerland with the rest coming from Queensland and NSW. Everyone had a great time with one saying they enjoyed every minute. Great paintings were achieved, Manuel lit the fire though Brian got very close to getting an ember, but he made up for it by hitting big red. Stevie got lots of cuddles.

Busy Sunday

Turned out to be a working day today with 11 people from “Sydney” coming in to do a CE after seeing us on “Whats up down Under” They were joined by Gabriela from Germany. Everyone thought it was exciting, awesome, entertaining and Manuel was a funny man. We had fun as well. Annabelle was spoilt and loved getting her chin rubbed. They were a very clever lot. Doing very good paintings as well as getting a fire lit and big Red was hit 3 times!!!! Well done everyone
