If you'd like to spend some time delving into the history of the land that much of Canberra occupies and its traditional landowners, the Ngunawal people, check out Dhawura Tours.

Established in 2013 by Ngunawal man Tyronne Bell, Dhawura Tours runs language workshops and guided tours around the region, spanning Namadgi National Park, Mount Majura, Black Mountain and more.

Venture up the beautiful Black Mountain and enjoy panoramic views of Canberra. While following the tracks and service trails, an Aboriginal guide will interpret the mountain's changing landscape since ancient times. Or do a half-day tour where you will drive around various sites to experience examples of Aboriginal occupation in the Canberra region.

Dhawura two-hour short tours cost $45 for adults, $35 for kids up to 16, and are free for children under six. Half day tours run for three-and-a-half hours and cost $85 for adults and $75 for 12-16 year olds.
