Kaarak Dreaming

Join Maitland Hill, a proud Aboriginal Nyoongar Balardong marman (man), on a tour that offers you an authentic Aboriginal experience on a guided bush trail walk in beautiful natural bush land in Jarrahdale, just one hour’s drive south of Perth.

Visitors are invited to take a journey into the Dreamtime and become immersed in the world’s oldest living culture. Maitland offers captivating insights into Aboriginal culture and ensures a relaxed and safe environment. Soak up the beauty of the tranquil bush on a walking tour while discovering secrets about bush tucker and bush medicine.

Insights into your experience

Join Maitland on a 90 minute bush walking tour along the Gooralong Creek in Jarrahdale, a short one hour drive south of Perth.
Nestled in the Serpentine National Park, the forest once witnessed logging of the tall trees. However, over the last century, the forest regenerated itself and it’s now a haven to a wide variety of flora and fauna. 

Maitland will greet you with a Traditional Welcoming Ceremony spoken in Nyoongar language.

Experience includes:

  • A 90 minute bush trail walk along Gooralong Creek in Jarrahdale with a local Nyoongar guide.
  • A class 3 walk: moderate walk trail with some uneven ground, suitable for most ages and abilities but not suitable for wheelchairs. Slow gentle pace with many stops along the way.
  • Experience and learn about the local native flora, bush medicine and traditional fishing techniques along the trail walk.
