    Fantastic experience!

    Yesterday, my girlfriend and I had a fantastic experience on the Goolimbil walkabout tour. It is a great wat to learn about the culture and traditions of the aboriginals who lived around Agnes Water many years ago. We really enjoyed the two tour guides who knew everything about the nature and aboriginals culture. Many thanks to them!!

    Hello Danny :) It was such a lovely day to be hosting you and your friend on the Goolimbil Walkabout yesterday. We could not have asked for more perfect weather for you to enjoy tour :) Glad you had a fantastic experience learning about the indigenous culture and traditions. We are humbled to be able to tell a piece of their story in history. Indigenous guide Ronnie and LARCman Neil make a great team showcasing this tour to our guests. We do hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay while you visited the town of Seventeen Seventy. Many thanks for coming along to experience the tour and for your recommendation :) Kind Regards The LARC! Crew
