Flight of Fancy podcast: Indigenous tourism - learning about First Nations culture

The oldest living culture in the entire world. That's what we have right here in Australia. A rich and varied culture, a culture full of myth and legend, full of knowledge and skill, full of ceremony and tradition. A culture of strength and pride. A culture many Australians probably know far too little about.

And when we say "culture", what we're really talking about here is hundreds of different cultures, hundreds of different languages, hundreds of different stories and beliefs with a collective history that stretches back more than 60,000 years. In other words, Australia has something truly incredible, and today we're going to talk about how you as a traveller can experience and understand it.

On this episode of Flight of Fancy, the Traveller.com.au podcast, I'm joined joined by Nhanda tour guide Darren "Capes" Capewell, and travel writer Kerry van der Jagt to delve deep into the Australian Indigenous tourism scene. 

The trio are going to find out what there is on offer in our great land, where you can go and what you can do to experience Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture for yourself. If you're looking to learn, to experience, to understand and to wonder, this is the place to do it.
