Overlander.tv - Mumbulla Mountain Aboriginal Sacred Site

Umbarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre - near Bermagui, NSW, Australia

Spent the night camping right on the beach at the beautiful Mimosa Rocks National Park just out of Tathra. In certain National Parks in Australia you can camp in designated camp grounds for a small fee and Mimosa Rocks is one of my favourites, with some fantastic rock formations at the Aragunnu camp site.

Today I am taking a tour to Mumbula Mountain, sacred to the local Aborigines.

Ronald Tighe, an Aboriginal guide at the Umbarra Cultural centre talks about the significance of Mumbulla Mountain.

The Umbarra Cultural Centre runs tours to local sacred sites. Participants can learn about the significance of these sites to the local Aborigines.

Melburnians appreciate the finest in life: food, coffee, music…oh and football. If you are in Melbourne during footy season, you won't be able to escape it, it's followed with religious fervour. 'Four Seasons in one day' - After a beautiful day on Friday, Melbourne turned out a shocking wet day today. I wanted to capture the multicultural element of Melbourne, so I spent some time filming the Victorian Markets. Melbourne represents to me fine food and a great live music scene. So on Friday night l went to a bush tucker restaurant and feasted on crocodile, and then watched Wendy Rule perform. A well known musician Wendy tells us what she likes about Melbourne. less

This eagerly anticipated drama tells the story of an English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman), and a rough-hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman) who drive 1,500 herd of cattle across Northern Australia. Most of the film was shot in the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and the cast and crew spent months here making the scenes look suitably spectacular. But just what did they get up to, and where did they hang out? This video follows in the footsteps of Nicole, Hugh and Baz, and also includes some great clips from the film.

By the early 1970's, the port was derelict and unused. The council of the day decided that its paddlesteamer heritage was unique and started restoration of the port. Today the paddlesteamers are making a comeback. Many old sunken boats are being repaired to their former glory. Kevin Hutchinson is a Shipwright who has played a large role in the paddlesteamer revival. Echuca is a great example of how rural towns can use their heritage to establish tourism. less

The small church of Agia Kyriaki was later built on the same spot, Here is St Paul's Pillar - the spot where the saint is said to have been tied and lashed 40 times on orders given by the then Roman governor. Paphos was a centre of the cult of Aphrodite and of pre-Hellenic fertility deities. Aphrodite's mythical birthplace was on this island as the rock of Aphrodite and the bath attest. One of the loveliest churches in the Pafos area is the six-domed Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi, in Geroskipou, east of Pafos. Most of the surviving frescoes date back to the 15th century. Ayios Neophytos Monastery is said to have been founded by a Cypriot hermit and writer called Neophytos in the year 1159. Neophytos carved a home for himself out of the mountain rock and it is here that you will find some of the finest frescoes from the Byzantine period dating from the 12th to the 15th century. By the harbour stands Paphos Castle, originally a Byzantine fort built to protect the harbour. It was rebuilt by the Lusignans in the 13th century, less

The story goes that when deciding on a National Capital, those in Sydney and Melbourne wouldn't give an inch, so decided to locate a city between them. Arrived in Canberra by the red eye Thursday night. You could spend a week in Canberra just seeing exhibitions. You can visit the National Gallery, the National Museum, the National Library, the National Science and Technology Centre, Old Parliament House, New Parliament House, the Australian War Museum, the National film and sound archives, the national museum of erotica etc etc, I think you get the picture! Canberra is the first location where a story has fallen through. I wanted to take a light hearted look at Canberra's sex and drug laws, which are the most liberal in Australia. I tried to set up an interview with a Mistress, but had great difficultly getting a response. Strange… My back up story is on the Aboriginal Tent Embassy. Although you won't find it listed on any maps, it has been located at the front gardens of Old Parliament House for close on 30 years. I spoke with Darren Bloomfield, the appointed keeper of the Sacred fire. less
