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. 

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

Created by palawa and Warlpiri woman Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, with dramaturgy by award-winning Tasmanian playwright Sarah Hamilton, this tour was initially developed through a performing arts lense and first presented through Ten Days on the Island Festival. 

As the only Aboriginal-led tour of nipaluna/Hobart, this is a must-do experience
