About this event

Everyone from around Australia is invited and welcome to join me (Coodz Mac) on Wangan and Jagalingou Country for a 90km bike tour.

WHAT: A 5 day guided cycle tour led by Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodians.

WHEN: Monday 23rd May to Friday 27th May

WHERE: Wangan and Jagalingou country in central Queensland. This year, the end point is the Waddananggu Cultural Ceremony that has been running for more than 6 months! The site is around a 13 hour drive north from Brisbane and 9 hours drive south from Cairns.

Join us to learn about Wangan and Jagalingou culture, the significance of our Totems, The Belyando, the Carmichael River and the importance of our sacred Doongmabulla springs, and see what’s at risk from Adani’s destructive mega coal mine.

The tour is family friendly, culturally-oriented and is working with Queensland Police Service to provide a safe environment.

The tour route will be along approximately 90km of public dirt road to the Waddananggu ceremony, just 1.5km opposite Adani’s coal pit.

Accommodation: you will need to bring your own camping gear or camper vehicle. Campsites will have a camp kitchen, drop toilets and limited chairs.

Food: three wholesome meals a day will be provided, as well as tea and coffee. BYO snacks.
