Boomerang Art and Dance at Rouse Hill House and Farm

Provided by:

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Weekly on Wednesday, until 9/10/2019


Come to Rouse Hill House and Farm to meet the staff from Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural and Education Centre. Then paint a boomerang and your face to experience the ancient art of dance and storytelling in their beautiful bush setting. Dancing and ochre painting are used to pass down knowledge and tell stories. Boomerangs also play a significant role in traditional ceremonies. They are sometimes used to tell the didgeridoo player when to start playing, to keep the beat and rhythm for dancers, to scare the birds out of the trees or for hunting kangaroos. Ages five and over Entry Cost Child $20 Member $15 - SLM Member Adults and Children $15 Adult $20
