Immerse in our First Peoples culture with Traditional Ceremonies, Basket weaving, Earth Ovens and much more.

It is important to us at Girrakool BF & BBQ to have our aboriginal brothers and sisters represented along side us. Since the Central Coast is rich in tradition, engravings and dreamtime stories, we welcome their inclusion into the festival.
