Nura Diya tour tile

Set on traditional Cammeraigal country, Taronga Zoo has many amazing Aboriginal stories to tell. Nura Diya, meaning “this country or camp”, takes you on a journey through Taronga as you hear stories of Australian wildlife told through the perspective of an Aboriginal guide, with tales of their shared history with the animals and land.

The Experience:

Developed with the indigenous community and led by an Aboriginal guide,  you will hear their own personal stories, and discover their important connections back to the land, animals and nature.

See Australia’s amazing animals in a new light, as you discover the binding relationships between flora and fauna and hear stories of the Dreaming describing creation of creatures and the landscape. Learn the centuries-old traditional uses of plants for food and medicine while enjoying interactive experiences with unique Australian wildlife, including Koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and a vast array of Australia’s birds.

Ideal for:

Those that want to not only come up-close to both wonderful Australian animals, but also want to discover more about Australia’s rich cultural heritage.
