Award-winning local artist Amelia Jajko will lead a morning of painting in Minyirr Park where you’ll delve into the tones and patterns of Yawuru country to create your own art piece.
Base Camp is accessed by the road to Gantheaume Point. There we’ll welcome everyone with a cup of tea and discover a bit about the beautiful dune ecosystem from a local Yawuru Ranger.
