Jinna Yunah - Seeing Carnavon

The easily accessible walking tour takes visitors on a moderate walk across the town bridge to the pristine floodplains at the mouth of the Gascoyne River. Along the way hear stories of traditional Yinggarda life and the impacts of colonisation. Visit an area abundant in traditional bushfoods, medicine plants and wildlife. At certain times of the year the bush here is ablaze with colourful and delicate wildflowers and in early spring, hidden claypans erupt with the frenzied mating season of the Burrowing Bee. Learn how these and other natural events were important seasonal indicators that the Yinggarda people lived by.
