Updated: Apr 18

As a tour guide, I am often asked by my guests about the indigenous people of Australia, their lives, and their rich history.


While I strive to share knowledge about the local flora and fauna, I recognize that a true understanding of this land requires insights from the Aboriginal people who have called it home for thousands of years. That's why I am thrilled to introduce a unique opportunity to delve into the captivating world of indigenous art and culture during your visit to Sydney.


The Nature and Wildlife - Australia in One Day tour is designed to immerse you in the natural wonders of Sydney. From the moment we embark on our journey, we leave the bustling city behind and venture into the serene bushland. But to truly grasp the essence of this land, it is crucial to explore it from the perspective of the Aboriginal people who have a deep connection to it.


Meet Garry Purchase


During this extraordinary tour, you will have the privilege of meeting Garry Purchase, a celebrated Aboriginal artist. Garry, a proud descendant of the Dharawal, Bidjigal, and Dhungutti tribes, grew up in Botany, located in Sydney's Eastern suburbs, where he was immersed in the vibrant Aboriginal community of La Perouse.


Garry's artwork is nothing short of breathtaking. He seamlessly combines traditional techniques with his own modern interpretation, creating pieces that must be seen to be believed. Visitors who have encountered Garry on our tours often describe it as a highlight of their experience.


While Garry's style retains the essence of traditional Aboriginal art, it also delves into his personal journey, experiences, and exploration of social issues. This innovative approach pushes creative boundaries and expands the horizons of Aboriginal art, offering a more contemporary perspective that captivates viewers.


If you're intrigued by the prospect of meeting Garry during your tour, simply let me know, and I'll ensure this unforgettable experience is included. Meeting Garry will grant you a deeper insight into the rich cultural heritage of the Aboriginal people. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to acquire authentic artwork, enabling you to take a piece of this extraordinary cultural experience home with you.


By immersing yourself in the captivating world of indigenous art and culture, you'll gain a deeper appreciation for the land, its stories, and the Aboriginal people who have nurtured it for millennia.


This is an exceptional opportunity to explore the world of Aboriginal art in Sydney.
