Aboriginal Welcome to Country

The beautiful Central Coast is rich in heritage and it is central to an area that has been used for ceremony for thousands of years. 

Aboriginal ceremony is used to acknowledge country and connect with mother earth. A Smoking ceremony is a way of cleansing the area, remembering the past, and as a way for all who use, live and visit the lands to benefit from into the future. 

Celebrate our first nations peoples with Aboriginal Traditional Custodian Kevin Duncan, as he leads a moving and spiritual Welcome to Country with his soul stirring didgeridoo, cultural songs, and dance on country. Join in by immersing in smoke, during the smoking ceremony.

Girrakool Blues recognises the indigenous people of this land by naming the event after the Girrakool waterfalls at Somersby, which is Aboriginal for “Place of still water”.
