About Wukalina walk
The Walk is a four-day guided walk that will immerse guests in a series of authentic experiences that will deepen their understanding of palawa culture, community and history. This will be achieved through a unique palawa interpretation of the magnificent natural landscape of the larapuna and wukalina areas, and of its historic and ongoing significance to palawa people.

And I was born in 1943! I’m British, live in the UK, and I love Australia. In the last 20 years I have visited half a dozen times, and with my wife have driven a good 20,000 km round most parts of the continent. But I was always an outsider, and most of the Australians I knew were descendants of the first European settlers. And I had never visited Tasmania. The Wukalina Walk has changed all that. Other people here talk about the magnificent natural landscape, the amazing accommodation, the superb food, our brilliant, caring guides. It is all true. But the Wukalina experience is so much more. I knew about Tasmania’s terrible history, the brutality of European invasion and occupation. But I was totally unprepared to learn so much about Aboriginal civilisation and the respectful partnership between the original human occupants of Australia and their natural world, developed over millennia. (I have since continued my education with Bruce Pascoe’s book Dark Emu.) I had a wonderful four days in Tassie. The warm companionship of the other eight guests on the walk made every day a delight. But two months after my trip what remains utterly vivid is a sense of privilege: that my Aboriginal hosts welcomed me as a friend and opened their hearts to me, and helped me begin to see their country through their eyes. The maturity of their vision is humbling, and their respect for the natural world an example to all of us. So I totally recommend the Wukalina Walk, not just because you will have a great time, but because it may also change the way you see the world, and motivate you to keep fighting for a better future. But as I write bush fires are continuing to burn, and political leaders in Australia, the UK and USA are continuing shut their eyes. So I would like to make the Wukalina Walk compulsory for every one of them!

On other walks I've wondered how the Aboriginal people related to the landscape - where they gathered, what they ate and how they cared for the land. It was wonderful to be welcomed onto the land by the Palawa (Tasmanian Aborigines) and for our guides and elders to share their own stories and the stories of their ancestors. We enjoyed walking across a variety of landscapes, great views, good food and lots of interesting conversation. There were opportunities to swim in the warm estuary and the crystal clear sea, to read, sleep and reflect in beautiful spaces - on rocks, in huts, around the fire. Highly recommended.

Unique opportunity to gain insights into Tasmanian aboriginal history and culture while taking in breathtaking bush and coastal scenery and staying in purpose built accomodation that reflects aboriginal heritage. This experience is in Abercrombie and Kent’s global hot list top ten escapes for 2020 for good reason.

My husband and I went on The Wukalina walk a few weeks ago. Over four days we walked along pristine coastline, immersed ourselves in nature and learning about aboriginal culture and history. The food was incredible! The walk has been so well planned and the accommodation at the Wukalina camp is truly beautiful and very comfortable. The lighthouse cottage accommodation was great too. Our guides Hank and Jacob were fun, enthusiastic, incredibly knowledgable and looked after us well with the support of Jayden!
