Head on a one-hour harbour cruise where First Nations astronomers will guide you through the landscape of the sky.
June 07, 2021
Indigenous Australians were the world's first astronomers, using the stars and planets for navigation, to predict the weather and as part of Dreamtime storytelling. You can get a peek at some of this vast knowledge on an Aboriginal Sky Dreaming Cruise. During the one-hour cruise, First Nations astronomers will guide you through the landscape of the sky and share stories as you float around Darling Harbour. You'll also get to learn about the famous emu-shaped dark installation Gugurmin, an important part of the Wiradjuri Peoples' skylore. A cruise on the harbour can sometimes cost you upward of $200, but this eye-opening experience will set you back just $30.
