Amazing afternoon

Good afternoon was had by all. Great “Bimo” (painting)and two fires lit, but big red is safe for another day. The joeys got lots of cuddles as well. Paris, Sienna and Miller wrote “Wonderful experience thanks” with lots of kisses and hugs so thanks for that. Amanda Nick and Eden wrote ” Such an amazing afternoon. We learnt so much and had fun doing so. Thankyou. Hope to come back one day” We hope you guys do come back. We do have families return. Ludivine and Cyril from France wrote ” It was a very interesting experience. Thankyou very much Manuel.”

The Russians are coming

As Manuel put it, we had Alex tribe come and visit today. We had a lovely group of Russians who now live in Sydney come into our gallery. They LOVED the wallabys. Alex is a bit rusty with his families language but they said he did ok.

French Connection

A quick change from afternoon to the morning for the Daveu family as they had to make sure they had enough time to drive to Darwin to catch their flight to Cairns. They had a great time with all the hands on activities and were very happy with their paintings in the end.  The good old touch up brush is everyones favourite.  We got a fire lit and Big Red was hit.  The joeys got lots of cuddles as well.  “Wonderful experience for a french family.  So lucky to have a half day with Manuel.”

Warlirr season

It’s Warlirr season in Dalabon culture the late dry season, when many of the trees are dropping leaves and the waterholes are drying out. Surface water is harder to find and many birds fly around a lot looking for water. Our cool season might be over but the fun still happens at Top Didj. We had families from Tassie again and one from Geelong. The Walduck family wrote, “Wonderful experience, we could listen to Maneul all day. Hands on was great for the kids and us.” The Wivell family wrote, ” So lucky to see Manuel and hear all of his history. Such a friendly, beautiful smile. The whole family loved it. Thank you.” Sam from Geelong wrote ” Fantastic had a great time. Keep up the good work.”

Warlirr season

Weather is warming up a little by the afternoon. We are in the Warlirr season which is the late dry season, when many of the trees are dropping leaves and the waterholes are drying out. Lucky we can turn our airconditioning on which is a sprinker system on the roof. Amazing how cool it make the area. The Mosse’s family from Switzerland and the Ruhle family from Pittsworth Queensland had a great time with Manuel and loved the hands on activities. The Ruhle family wrote “truly an amazing experience. Will highly recommned Top Didj. Thanks. The Mosse’s family thanked Manuel and loved the fact that it was so hands on.

Scholl Group

Our second last lot of Kyabram school kids came in this morning. They have been doing interesting things around Katherine. We had some really good paintings done and fires got lit but big red was safe. The students all thought it was interesting and fun. Manuel loves to share his culture with the students and hopes they remember lots to tell everyone when they get back to their own country.
