Aboriginal Outback Cattle Station


Discover the culture and history of an Aboriginal Cattle Station and the Nywaigi Aboriginal People who have occupied the lands north of Townsville for over 45,000 years. The Nywaigi were fortunate to live in the ‘land of plenty’ where wildlife, fruits, berries and seafood were freely available. They used the vines of the rainforest to create bags and tall trees for outrigger canoes that allowed fishing in the local rivers and the Great Barrier Reef. Join local guides and uncover the rich heritage of the Station, the history of local indigenous people and the first European settlers of the region, the Cassady family. Take a guided tour of the Old homestead site remnants and hear tales of the often brutal confrontations between European settlers and the local Aboriginal people, and the vital role the Cassady family played in protecting the Nywaigi people. There is time to view artefacts, try your hand at Boomerang throwing, chat to indigenous story tellers, hear the Captive Lives story and see an exhibition at the Grand Old Mungalla homestead.
