We had our last Seniors Coach in yesterday. Great group of people as always out to enjoy themselves. The fire was lit and they had a good old chin wag, fed sweet potato to the bigger wallabies and got to cuddle the joeys .
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.”
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.”
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.
Traci, Charlotte, Remy and Nayte from the Ghan came in this morning and had a great time with us. Traci got the fire lit and Charlotte hit Big Red. Would take this family camping anytime. Traci wrote “Fantastic experience. Truly appreciate everything. Amazing definitely recommend. Thanks Traci we enjoyed having your family here. The joeys love getting cuddled.
Last school group throught this afternoon all the way from Jilkminggan School where they have been staying. Vincent, Theo and Alexia from Belgium joined the group. Vincent wrote “great meeting with Manuel-save this place, it’s important.” The teachers and students from Kyabram thought the CE was awesome, fantastic and unbelievable. Fires were lit but again Big Red was safe.
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.
They still keep coming and we still keep giving them a good time. Margaret and Charles wrote “The best cultual experience. Loved it. all. Thanks Manuel and Petrena So much fun.” Didier from France wrote “wonderful!! A superb experience as you do it by your own-this is not oly listening but doing it- Manuel thanks to Manuel. a fire was lit and Big Red was hit. And everyone had a cuddle with the joeys.
