Discovering Mt Majura

Mt Majura is familiar to many people living in Canberra – I’ve walked to the summit many times. On Sunday 4 June, Tyronne Bell from Dharwra Aboriginal Cultural Tours showed us another side to the area, with his stories providing a new understanding of of a different way of living, closely connected to the land.

Here are just a few photos.
