Fantastic cultural experience.
Jul 2021 • Solo
Being in a Homeland community, being part of the Yolnja culture, learning about it. Being in a community that hasn't suffered such devastating colonisation like so many of Aust's indigenous cultures.
Fantastic experience and humbling that these people are so welcoming.

Authenticity with Lirrwi Tours
Jun 2021
This has to be one of the best tours I have ever been on and that's many because i travelled all over the world. I learnt so much about the Aboriginal culture and the people were only too willing to to share their lives with us. I intend to travel with them again and hope I'll be able to meet some of the friends i made on this trip and make some new ones as well. Thank you to everyone who made this trip so memorable. Rachel was an excellent tour and most capable tour leader

Dear Margaret, Thank you for your fabulous review of your Crossing Country Tour. This was one of the first tour groups we had taken to the Baniyala homeland and on all accounts it sounds like the community made you all very welcome, and that the Yolngu hosts enjoyed the visit as much as our tour participants. How fantastic that you made great friends during your trip. Please spread the word about your experience. Kind regards, Lirriw Tourism Team.

An amazing experience
Jun 2021
This was an amazing experience. We visited beautiful Nyinyikay Homeland and were warmly welcomed by the families who live there. We (the women) learned to find and use natural dyes and fibres, and spent many happy hours sitting with the Nyinyikay ladies, weaving and hearing stories. Meanwhile, the men went fishing and crabbing - and even selected a tree that, less than 24 hours later, became a didgeridoo. Howard, our tour leader, and Yolngu guides Noella and Kingsley were so knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend this tour.

Heart warming trip of a lifetime
Jun 2021 • Couples
The Baniyala community were heart warming in their hospitality, enthusiasm and inclusivity in all aspects of the experience. The depth of sharing from daily life to sacred sites was immense and an honour. The amount of laughter and discussions so lively and kind, that it was a deep inspiration of what humanity is at our essence. Such a rich experience cannot be distilled in words but this is a worthy trip of a lifetime.
