Takara nipaluna / walking Hobart

Our flagship tour, takara nipaluna, gives voice to the palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) perspective, history and continued presence within this city, and exposes the layers of history beneath the asphalt. It will lead you to a richer understanding of this place and of the palawa experience here. A revelatory, truth-telling performance that will resonate with you long after the walk ends.

This is a historical story-telling tour that combines the history of lutruwita Tasmania with a style of presentation and storytelling like no other on the market. Initially developed through a performing arts lense and first presented through Ten Days on the Island Festival, truly unlike any other on the market.

Created by award-winning palawa and Walpiri woman Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, The walk follows the route taken in 1832 by members of the Aboriginal resistance, retracing their steps as they progressed to the old Government House to negotiate an end to the Black War. As the only Aboriginal-led tour of nipaluna/Hobart, this is a must-do experience
