Discover Bama bush techniques with Guurrbi Tours
Bama Way is 100% Aboriginal owned and inspired so you can guarantee authenticity of the original Bama culture. Willie Gordon (Guurrbi Tours), with the help of Judy Bennett, began Bama Way in 2003 with export ready Bama tours.
The ideology of linking all the Bama together was the foundation of the first meetings with the original Bama including Willie Gordon, the Walker boys and Walker sisters. These meetings were to determine who was on the land boundaries appropriate to tell the stories, and to see who was export ready. Willie Gordon had been in business for nearly 10 years with Guurrbi Tours and was export ready. The Walker boys and Walker sisters were still in development.
Bama Way tours were to introduce tourists to recognise that where ever they go they are crossing different Aboriginal boundaries – different family & clan groups, different tribal areas with different languages.
Bama Way 2 & 3 day tours will continue to be available. Please contact Carmyn on 0459 78 11 00 for more information and bookings.
We invite you to contact the individual BAMA directly for Aboriginal art and tours on country.
On this award-winning tour Aboriginal Elder, Willie Gordon, takes you through a dramatic landscape to six rock art sites, including the Rainbow Serpent Cave and an ancestral Birth Site where Willie’s grandfather was born. Along the way you’ll learn some of the traditional survival techniques of the Nugal-warra people.
Willie Gordon, Nugal-warra Elder and Harold Bowen, from the Thupi clan are passionate about their Aboriginal culture and spirituality and share their knowledge in Guurrbi Tours, Cooktown. Click here to read more about the Bama in the Bama Way Journeys in Cape York, Tropical North Queensland
