Aspiring Safari Guides enjoy culture around the campfire
(Facilitator Jeremy Perks with graduate Noel Morrison, who will help to run

Safari Guide Workshops is a unique introductory course designed for adventurous people who want to learn basic safari guide skills.
The workshops are facilitated by Jeremy Perks, a Director of Global Gypsies, a Finalist in Tour Guide of the Year and a professional
Safari Guide and experienced four-wheel driver who has worked in both Australia and Africa.
The next session of Safari Guide Workshops will be held on November 13-14 2004 at Murdoch University, Perth and a southern bush camp.
Now in its third year of operation, the course has just added another exciting dimension to its content - Aboriginal Culture.
On Saturday, December 4, from
1:00 p.m. - 10 p.m, the inaugural "Campfire Culture" session will take place. It will be run by the
first indigenous graduates of Safari Guide Workshops, Noel Morrison and Anthony Hansen. Noel is a Nyoongar Elder and both men have
completed the Aboriginal Studies program at Challenger TAFE. They attended Safari Guide Workshops thanks to assistance from WAITOC.
"Campfire Culture" will be a very special grass-roots, no-frills, indigenous learning experience based on friendship and the honest
exchange of information. It will have a relaxed and open format with the opportunity for interaction on a one-on-one basis.
There will be demonstrations, guided walks, hands-on activities such as knife and string-making, a bush-tucker dinner, and the chance
to ask questions and develop genuine relationships round the campfire.
Noel and Anthony will be assisted by Jeremy and by other students in the Challenger TAFE Aboriginal Tourism Studies class aged from 20 - 50.
The event will be open not just to existing and aspiring tour guides, but to anyone who wants to learn more about Aboriginal Culture.
The venue will be the Waliabup Centre in Bibra Lake, an Aboriginal educational facility in a natural bush setting just 15 minutes from Perth.
