An in-depth enthusiastic view of Aboriginal Culture
We were part of a 4.5 hour tour of nine people in a Cruise Critic group during our cruise stop in Albany. Joey and Catherine were wonderful guides, eager to share their experiences and traditions. We saw the statue of Mokare, the Man of Peace in downtown Albany, learned about aboriginal fish traps, the use of plants in both diet (bush tucker) and as medicines, saw a display of aboriginal tools and carvings, learned (and did!) the kangaroo dance, and witnessed Joey's artistic talent, both as a watercolor and sand painter. He plays a pretty good didgeridoo, too.

A "Must Do" Not to be missed
Today we went on Poornarti Aboriginal Tour. What a wonderful surprise this tour was. Small enough to really feel engaged and very attentive tour guides. Our Noongar guide Joey Williams told us his stories verbally, visually and through song...as they were passed down to him...what a wonderful thing to be able to share. We won't look at the landscape the same again...so much is there that we simply don't see. A special treat was Joey's demonstration of aboriginal painting, learning that not all indigenous art is made up of dot painting! Katherine's wonderful morning tea - served right there in the bush was just lovely and very welcome! To end the tour, we visited Joey and Katherine's art gallery...filled with wonderful art. We are popping back tomorrow to claim a painting! Our tour was in Denmark and we are now considering going on the Albany and Stirling Ranges tours. Thank you Joey and Katherine. Doug & Ja

Joey and Catherine took us on an authentic journey of learning in country we are lucky enough to live in. A wonderful opportunity to become aware of the beautiful and complex culture of the people who walked so respectfully through this country and still do. Deepest thanks. I would recommend this experience to locals and visitors alike.
