Passionate about his cultural heritage and people, Lionel embraces opportunities to share his knowledge of the land and educate others about his culture through guided walks ‘on country’, didgeridoo healing meditations, smoking ceremonies and talks.
Hosted by Gunditjmara Kirrae Wurrung – Bundjalung man, Lionel Lauch, this experience explores the No 16 beach divide in Rye.
No. 16 Beach Divide in Rye is one of Lionel’s favourite places on the Mornington Peninsula. Surrounded by native coastal flora, Lionel will educate everyone in his easy going manner on bush-tucker, medicines, share knowledge of Indigenous culture and this ancient landscape. You will find a quiet spot in the dunes to sit and be led through a didgeridoo meditation session whilst taking in the gorgeous ocean view.
The duration of the walk is approximately two hours, and will commence at 9:00am so please arrive at 8:45am. After the completion of the walk you will need to drive to Peninsula Hot Springs where you will enjoy bathing in our Bath House. The Bath House is Peninsula Hot Springs’ social, family-friendly bathing area which offers over 20 globally-inspired experiences.
