When visiting Australia, there is no way of escaping the rich and beautifull culture the country has to offer. The most important and dominant cultural aspect is, offcourse, the presence of Aboriginal people. As the first inhabitants of Australia, they have a long history with huge amounts of precious stories from the past… A past that is typically called the Tjukurpa (Dreamtime or ‘creation period’ ). These dreamtime stories include almost all native animals, with names and legends to go with them. All our animals are named after such animals, legends, myths… I hope you can appreciate this as much as we do, since we feel this aspect of Australia shouldn’t be forgotten…
