Wyld Woman Goes Bush

A radical life changing personal development story of how a woman walks away from her 'norm' travelling the Australian outback, meeting with Australian Aboriginals, then venturing into Tibetan Buddism….. and then realising the ancient wisdom to expanding consciousness has always been within.

Mungalla Station in Ingham

The Mungalla Station is definitely a must to experience, and what I mean by experience is to stay for awhile on the land and get to know the people. I’m hugely impressed with the community vibe here and how everyone works together to create an ideal situation for people of all races to experience the Indigenous culture.

“Today, the Mungalla Aboriginal Business Corporation and its parent body the Nywaigi Aboriginal Land Corporation which holds title to Mungalla Station have a  mandate to improve the economic and social position of our people.  We have chosen to achieve these aims by sharing the rich history and culture of Mungalla Station with you through our tours.”

During the week I was there they had around 20 Indigenous students staying on the property who go to school in town daily to learn Tourism or Hospitality.

They also had 2 tour groups come through who went on their Aboriginal Cultural Tour – find out more by clicking here. The first tour group of more than 50 students was from OHIO University.

The Mungalla Station also has an amazing Captive Lives exhibition that tells the story of how two groups of INdigenous people from the area were taken to America and Europe in the 1880s and 1890s to be exhibited at the Chigago World Fair, circuses and curiosity shows.

Since I was there for the week I had the delight and pleasure of speaking with the Nywaigi traditional owners. What an honour!

I’m truly inspired by this place! The people and the land feel so alive here!

I have plans to return, and I hope you feel inspired to visit them too: http://www.mungallaaboriginaltours.com.au
