Event description

Description

You are invited to immerse yourself in Indigenous culture. Nunukul Yuggera and Quandamooka Coast are working together to bring you a boat cruise from Brisbane City to North Stradbroke Island.

Come on the cultural day cruise, 6th of December 2017 from Meeanjin to Minjerribah, that's traditional Aboriginal language for Brisbane City to North Stradbroke Island.

Departing from and returning to the convenience of Southbank in the heart of the city, this fully catered day cruise of traditional Yuggera & Quandamooka lands & waters accompanied by local Aboriginal guides is a must do for Brisbane visitors and residents.

At Meeanjin (Brisbane City), we head down Maiwar (Brisbane River) where guides share dreaming stories of the land and waters while we travel. Enjoy an intimate weaving circle, learning local Aboriginal language, didgeridoo playing and a display of ancient Indigenous artefacts on board. From Maiwar, traditional Yuggera Country, we cruise into Quandamooka waters and continue across the bay to Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island).

On Minjerribah, we will be welcomed by the Quandamooka people and experience a traditional smoking ceremony. We will then travel by coach to Mooloomba (Point Lookout). In a stunning location we will enjoy a lunch of fresh local seafood followed by optional activities including boomerang throwing, a guided cliff top Gorge Walk and wildlife sighting. In the afternoon the Yulu-Burri-Ba Dance Group will dance traditional songs by Bummiera, a fresh water tea-tree lake. On the return cruise to the city, local Aboriginal artwork and gifts will be available for purchase.

  • Catering provided - morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea & beverages (non-alcoholic). Bar available.
  • Cruise departs at 9:00am from River Outlook Pontoon, on the Brisbane River nearest The Wheel of Brisbane in Southbank Parklands.
  • Cruise docks on North Stradbroke Island from approximately 11:00am - 3:30pm and returns to Southbank Parklands at 5:00pm.
