Relaxing and creative experience.
Janbal Gallery is a beautiful blend of a modern gallery with an impressive art collection and offering, and a comfortable, friendly studio where you can relax and set your inhibitions to the side. My husband and I did the art workshop for our first year wedding anniversary (the theme is paper so we thought creating art together would be nice). I strongly believe this workshop would be great for absolutely anyone! Our young niece would love it! As would my Grandma. My husband really embraced the experience and was proud of his work – which was amazing by the way (Binna helped). I was painting right up to the last minute and Binna was very understanding and helped us along the way – however also left us at times so we could focus and get in the zone – again demonstrating his great approach to teaching. The art workshop was a highlight of our trip to north Queensland and is a must-do.
Culture and Nature
If you are interested in nature and gaining knowledge about indigenous culture then this is the tour for you. There was a small group on the day of our tour (7 in total) which made it a personal experience rather than feeling like a tour. After an early morning pickup with our guide Roger we took a stunning scenic drive to Cooya Beach where we were greeted by Linc, a traditional owner from the Kuku Yalanji tribe.We walked a long way out across the sand at low tide and the views of the coastline and mountains were beautiful The tour included Linc providing information about bushtucker including traditional seafood and medicines .We walked into the mangroves to find periwinkles and clams. After the walk along the beach we were welcomed into the family home for morning tea which included Lincs mums homemade damper. Thank you Linc for your generosity and hospitality and Roger for your great insight into Indigenous culture. This tour was a highlight of our trip.
If you’re looking for a unique outdoor experience with culture, adventure and nature in mind, this is for you! One of the best thing we’ve done as a family and our 2 boys (9 & 11) will remember it forever. Linc was the ultimate hands-on tour guide, sharing his incredible knowledge as we meandered along the mud flats, opening our eyes to a whole new world. It’s a laid back, no frills experience, with the perfect finish – delicious fresh mud crab cooked by Linc’s lovely mum. Highly recommended!
Doing this art workshop with Binna as well as all the other amazing activities throughout my 2 week tour that i went on with school. But i would definitely recommend this half day art workshop with culture connect.
