The whole experience was wonderful. The presenters moved seamlessly from area to area and from one presenter to the other. They imparted so much knowledge in the time. And it was colourful and we could touch things!

Would recommend doing this if you are in the Kings Creek or Kings Canyon area for a day. Stories and information are delivered superbly in a very digestible way by wonderful and genuine people. Even got to taste a witchetty grub! Kids loved it.

What a beautiful hour spent with Peter, Elma and their colleagues learning more about our history and the incredible nature that surrounds us in Australia. The experience is delivered with a warm welcome in a beautifully organic and professional way. A true authentic Indigenous experience sharing the stories, methods and knowledge of the nature that surrounds us. During this experience, you'll learn every plant you've casually walked past unknowingly in Central Australia and its use for medicine, bush tucker or various uses for specific trees across the seasons. Karrke is very close to Kings Creek Station and Kings Canyon and is easily accessible from the highway in all vehicles. Visiting Karrke will be enlightening, humbling and the most memorable part of your trip. You won't be disappointed. Also, the cleanest loo in the Territory :) Thanks again Peter for your hospitality. Belinda and Ruth

Peter and his colleagues were so warm, welcoming and inviting - it was a wonderful experience to be shown how the traditional owners lived, what they gathered, what they made, their tools and what stories their art tells. I learned so much and it made me realise how little I knew. Peter was so inviting of questions and encouraged participation which made it so easy to learn. Explaining the art really brought the art to life and captured my interest. There is so much more depth to the art when you know the story behind it. I bought a lovely piece that they had on display and I am now keen for more. Thank you and Palya Peter!
