Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre

 Hi people of the world. I loved Narana, it was so fun! First we got to throw boomerangs. Mine didn’t go far at all, but Mr Ahearn’s throw, WOW! It went so far.

Then we did a nature walk. We got to eat pigface, which was a plant that hydrated you. Then we tried another plant that tasted like lettuce (I forget what it was called)

.Next our tour guide, Kirsten, showed us a really good shelter made of wood, leaves and sticks and met the resident emus. I saw Oliver sitting on the nest. He didn’t have his head up so he looked like a rock.

In the main room we looked at all the artefacts. There were all sorts of boomerangs and spears and all that cool stuff. Here comes the best part…….. Finally the cooked kangaroo was ready, and Yum, it was so good!

Then we looked at Aboriginal paintings in the gallery and the guide told us the moral of one painting which was , “share and don’t be greedy”.

We then looked at things in the shop such as different types of boomerangs and didgeridoos and I loved the double didgeridoo and the flash light boomerang. Lyndon showed us how to play the didgeridoo.

We then had lunch and sadly, it was time to go back to school. I really loved Narana.
