Scale to the Summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and discover fresh perspectives on the city below with an Indigenous Storyteller as your guide.
Two decades after thousands of Australians walked across the Bridge in the name of reconciliation, this three-hour experience offers a unique and unmissable immersion into Aboriginal stories and landmarks across the harbour. With Burrawa — a local Aboriginal word that means “above” or “upwards”— visitors step through history with stories that span thousands of years to the present day.
Gaze out to sea through Aboriginal eyes. Look down on the shores where Patyegarang taught William Dawes the language of Sydney. Learn the origins of the familiar place names that circle the water’s edge, Bennelong Point and Barangaroo.
With a view that is celebrated around the world, this special event offers a rare opportunity to broaden our understanding and appreciation of the Harbour City.
About BridgeClimb Charity Partner – Tribal Warrior
All the work that occurs at Tribal Warrior, an Aboriginal led not-for-profit in Redfern NSW, is to meet their mission of empowering community through culture and family and to support young people and their families.
Their mentoring programs and community development work is at the heart of their not-for-profit and the reason why they exist. They believe in investing in younger generations and their families to ensure the strength of Aboriginal culture anchors their decisions and life choices.
Tribal Warrior run three core mentoring programs that focus on supporting Redfern based Indigenous youth, restoration of families and programs for inmates, all of which aim to instil the core principles of culture, routine and discipline. In addition to mentoring, you may also see them out on the Mari Nawi (Big Canoe), their boat that delivers cultural cruises on Sydney Harbour where passengers learn about the unique and rich Aboriginal stories and history of Sydney Harbour, training Indigenous people to gain maritime qualifications or in workplaces facilitating cultural awareness training.
