BushTracks

BushTracks guided walking Tour in Agnes Water and 1770

…on our brand-new, accessible bushland boardwalk – the newest attraction on the Discovery Coast!
1st April – 31st October Tuesdays – Saturdays at 9 am

Are you ready for an unforgettable escape into the heart of nature? 

I am a tour guide, with over 20 years of experience in the Tourism Industry! I worked alongside indigenous guides in Arnhemland and presented interpretive programs as a seasonal ranger in the World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park. My interest and passion about history, culture and native flora and fauna brings us here today – the creation of “BushTracks”! My vision is to share my love and knowledge about the bush with people. People who travel Australia. People who live in Australia. People who will look at plants and remember what they have learnt from me during “BushTracks”.

I would like to invite you to fully immerse yourself in a truly unique experience on the Discovery Coast. Our 44-acre bush property is located within the Goreng Goreng Nation, just outside of Agnes Water/1770 and I live here with my beautiful wife and two young boys.

“BushTracks” takes you on a journey through native Australian bushland, rich with Bushtucker and Bush Medicines. Learn about traditional and cultural uses of plants, embark on a journey through past and present and learn about cultural burning practices protecting our land. Several native beehives keep the diversity of our plants thriving all year round. Wildlife habitats can be seen on the peaceful walk through our ever-changing bushland. The vast variety of native trees inhabit over 60 species of birds. Bring your binoculars – you never know which bird you might spot on the day!

Stop for a minute and give yourself the opportunity to truly immerse in nature!

After an informative walk under the canopy of tall gumtrees, you will enjoy a delicious cup of local, organic Tielka Tea, accompanied by Wattle Seed Choc Chip Cookies and Davidson Plum Slice from Dreamtime Tuka – a majority owned Aboriginal company located in NSW.  Entice your taste buds by sampling an array of Australian made native spreads supplied by Kurrajong Australian Native Foods.

Listen to the sounds of the birds, the wind in the trees and reflect on the experience you’ve just had!

We work closely with local organizations like Tangaroa Blue, Australian Native Bee Association and Tielka Tea to promote sustainable practices within our business.

This tour called “Bush Tracks” is located at Travellers Rest 1770 to the west of Agnes Water. It is located in Goreng Goreng country. It takes in a variety of paperbark and stringybark Eucalyptus, cabbage palms, cocky apples, black boys and other lesser well known but widespread species of native flora. It also included 3 commercial native bee hives and explanation of the habits of birds, goanna and other fauna. First Nation scar trees are exhibited and explained. I sadly saw what damage a single introduced feral pig will do. The country had been under a remedial cultural burn supervised by GorengGoreng elders. The process of this native practice was explained in detail (a first for me). The tour wrapped up with a sample tasting of tasting of cakes, jams and biscuits commercially available using native flora ingredients. As such it is an excellent educational tour with many insights into not only practical modern use of bush tucker and medicine, but also how we all could now live sustainably in Australia using the knowledge garnered from the local First Nation. Dave was our extremely knowledgeable tour guide, formerly employed with the NPWS in the Northern Territory. I went in a late Autumn evening when the paperbarks were in flower and it was cool. I would very much like to repeat the tour. Full body protection from mosquitoes is essential. As the tour takes in medical practices, probably best suited to intelligent tourists with experience of life. Easy level walking trail.

Great way to learn about the nature and history of the Agnes Water and the 1770 region. Mike was very knowledgeable and was willing to share his knowledge and encourage others to share any insights that they might have of their own, making for a delightful bush walk.
