2016 Tasmanian Aboriginal Cultural Education Program - waranta mulaka yula
We, the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, hunt muttonbirds.

Tasmanian Aboriginal people have harvested yula seasonally and sustainably for thousands of years.
Muttonbirding is central to the rich and vibrant Aboriginal culture of lutruwita Tasmania today.

Your TMAG Aboriginal guide, an experienced muttonbirder, will share the story of these amazing birds and his people. This program also includes a short visit to ningina tunapri Tasmanian Aboriginal gallery and hands-on activities that are lots of fun.

Duration: 2 hours
