The Top Didj Cultural Experience has been developed to offer visitors to the Katherine Region, a unique cultural interaction with the aboriginal people. This is achieved by introducing Manuel Pamkal from the Dalabon tribe. Manuel will teach visitors the traditional way of living in the bush as he experienced as a child. He will tell stories and showcase traditional activities such as fire lighting, spear throwing with a woomera and painting whilst educating visitors about aboriginal culture and way of life.
At Top Didj you will also be able to view or purchase authentic aboriginal art, good quality souvenirs and the best didgeridoos in the NT. Check out the wildlife. The cultural experience is designed to promote a positive experience with the aboriginal people. They own a beautiful culture that amazes many travellers. This fantastic 2 ½ hour interpretive experience takes place in the grounds of Top Didj & Art Gallery every day at 9:30 and 2:30. The experience will not only teach you about our local indigenous culture but also provide many hands on activities such as: Learning about indigenous culture and art; Paint a piece of Indigenous artwork; Test your skills at fire lighting; Get to hold or feed baby wallabies; View and purchase some of the best indigenous art and didgeridoos in the Northern Territory. Once you have confirmed your booking at the gallery a guide will take you to where the cultural experience takes place. We recommend you arrive no less than 10mins before the allotted time.
