Nitmiluk Culture Camps

 

2 separate camps took place within Nitmiluk National Park on the last week of school holidays. Steven Andrews took 20 Jawoyn youth to Nitmiluk Gorge to fish, canoe and walk for the week. He was assisted by 2 casual rangers and 2 elders. Everyone thought it was awesome. Walking on the Nitmiluk gorge stone country was hard going, but canoeing back down was very rewarding.

The other expedition had 20 men head off to the very top of the Fergusson headwaters on the Marrawal Plateau. The stone country before where the river pummels down to the low country below has much rock art. Old know sites were revisited and assessed and new sites where found throughout the week.
