Me-Mel may only be 300 metres long, but — like all of Australia — the heritage-listed harbour island has a rich Indigenous history, and was once the home of Woollarawarre Bennelong and his wife, Cammeraygal woman Barangaroo. You can learn about some its history during this three-hour guided tour, as well as the island's native flora. The trip will start with a ferry to the isle, followed by a Welcome to Country. There'll be cultural song and dance performances, too, as well as demonstrations showcasing traditional artefacts. To finish, you'll get a bush tucker lunch and a campfire Q&A session with the performers — before jumping back on the ferry back to the mainland.
