YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER
Open your eyes to the country and world of the Yawuru people on this Broome tour in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Join Johani as he offers an informative guided walk along Broome’s Birndany trail. The trail is located in the Minyirr Buru conservation park, an area traditionally known as a place of healing for its abundance of plant medicine and bush foods. On the 1.2 km walk, visitors learn about Minyirr Buru’s native flora, taste bird flower nectar and listen to Yawuru dreamtime stories. Make sure you look out for the ancient dinosaur tracks in the coastal areas of the park, a must-see on Johani’s tour.
Your guide Johani will pick you up in the comfort of the Mabu Buru Tours 4WD or you can tagalong in your own 4WD.
Minyirr Park is a very special place that has a coastal birragun (bushland) and nyiamarri (sand dune) system, a place of great significance for the Yawuru and Djugun people abundant in native flora and fauna. Traditionally known as a place of healing, Minyirr Buru is an area of cultural and ecological significance. The park is both a Yawuru Conservation Estate and an Indigenous Protected Area.
Discover animal tracks that make patterns in the dunes, mostly lizards, snakes and ghost crabs. You never know what you will encounter, so expect the unexpected.
You will also experience a short, leisurely beach walk to see some dinosaur tracks (tide dependent). One of only a few places in the world where there is a strong link between dinosaur tracks and Indigenous creation stories.
Learn about plants traditionally used for medicine, food and making tools along with discussions about Yawuru culture, country and history.
“Balancing Yawuru traditional knowledge with Western science gives me a unique perspective in my work as a qualified Indigenous Ranger. I encourage all people to experience our spiritual and physical connection to country and spread understanding of Aboriginal culture.” - Johani Mamid
