Ardi'ol Indigenous Tours - Mardaj (Reef) Tour

About the Experience

Journey back in time with Ardi’ol, where our ancestors walked the land, learning how traditional knowledge has been handed down over seven generations and still practiced today.

Let us show you the Bardi way of life, listening to stories, while exploring the mangrove, exposed reef system and ancient fish trap with spectacular island views.

Learn how to make your own traditional fishing spear, enjoy fresh damper by the Campfire, under the baali (beach shelter) and if you’re lucky you might even get to see some dinosaur footprints.

This guided walk travels through natural landscape, we’ll pass over rocky, uneven, and sometimes slippery terrain. Waterproof shoes are recommended as we pass through shallow water (alternatively, reef boots are supplied). A medium physical fitness is required.

Damper, Tea & Coffee will be provided.

What to bring

  • Tag along tour with your own 4WD vehicle
  • Walking/reef shoes
  • Personal water bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Camera
