Laura Dance Festival

One of the best ways to gain a true understanding of Aboriginal culture is to experience a cultural festival all in a day. Enjoy the spectacular rugged outback by air charter as we as we embark on a scenic day tour out to one of the most important cultural gatherings of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia, the Laura Dance Festival. When flying over this huge area, you will soon realise why it is one of the most stunning areas of Australia to experience.

Discover the history, traditions and share in their culture with a guided rock art tour at Split Rock with Culture Connection Tours before heading to the Dance Festival where more than 5,000 people attend the Laura Dance Festival to gain insight into the uniqueness of Aboriginal culture, which sees around 500 artists from 20 Cape York communities come together. A truly remarkable cultural experience where you will witness the story telling of Aboriginal culture through dance, language and art.
