    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!!
