What an incredible start to the Easter school holidays! Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park and Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre partnered to bring our guests an unforgettable Welcome to Country ceremony!
Overlooking the pristine Tallebudgera Creek with Burleigh Headlands ‘Jellurgal’ as the backdrop, park guests along with local business and community groups gathered for a free, immersive cultural experience. The Yugambeh Aboriginal dancers performed traditional dance, didgeridoo, songs, and shared stories about the cultural significance of the surrounding land and waterways.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park to share this engaging display of Aboriginal culture with Gold Coast visitors,” said Jellurgal and Kalwun Development Corporation Ltd CEO, Kieran Chilcott.
''We love to showcase our award-winning park and its unique location, by providing our guests with amazing experiences when they stay with us at Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park. Through partnerships with local business and community we strive to provide memorable holidays to our diverse range of guests. One of these partnerships is with Jellurgal and Kalwun Development Corporation, which will allow our staff and guests to have a better knowledge of the Indigenous culture and history of the region’’, said Adrian Easdown, Managing Director, Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park.
“Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park is situated alongside the picturesque Tallebudgera Creek and Jellurgal (Burleigh Headland), home to many culturally significant sites and is the basis of numerous Dreamtime stories. [We] hope this experience will leave visitors with a better understanding of Aboriginal culture on the Gold Coast."
