Mirrabooka Aboriginal Experience – Yuggera Aboriginal Dancers

Discover the wonder and excitement of Australia’s magical Indigenous culture, ancient stories and music.

Meet the local Brisbane Aboriginal Tribe Riverlife Mirrabooka and share in rich Aboriginal culture presented by the Yuggera Aboriginal dancers. Develop an awareness of the diverse aspects of contemporary Aboriginal culture by witnessing and participating in traditional song and dance passed down over many generations, primitive fire starting techniques, playing of Aboriginal musical instruments (such as didgeridoos) and listening to Indigenous educational talks that offer an insight into Aboriginal life and history of this ancient land.

Since the group’s formation seventeen years ago, the Yuggera Aboriginal Dancers have performed to audiences in Australia and throughout the world. Already popular with travellers from the UK and Europe, their audience members range from Queen Elizabeth II to the street children of Asia.

Riverlife Mirrabooka are now in the Queensland Tourism Awards Hall of Fame for the Best Indigenous Product in Queensland, Australia. They have also won numerous awards for reconciliation and helping young aboriginal children.
