What you'll do
Join me as we breathe the purest air as it flows in from the Southern Ocean . Slow down a bit, smell the sea breeze, feel the gentle sea air on your face. Hear the roar of the surf and the spirits of wild ocean. Feel the soft sand between your toes as you throw a pebble into the shallows. Learn local legends and stories as we explore the incredible coastline of Port Macdonnell, including the story of the magnificent Sunken Forest. Let me share with you some of the local Boandik language along the way. Come with me as I take you on a foraging journey where we will identify, touch and taste some of the finest bush foods along our coast. You'll be surprised by the incredible flavours that are growing right in front of you as we explore nature's own supermarket. While we're there we will take a look into nature's chemist as well and discover coastal bush medicines that were used by the Boandik people many years ago. You’ll never look at a humble plant in the same way again. Be inspired and discover natural artwork along the way, and regain your appreciation for mother nature and the beauty she creates. Don't forget to ask where the "rollie pollie" goes after the storm...
My name is Ken Jones. My family is from a long line of hunter and gatherers in this area. I have been a professional crayfish and shark fisherman, and have worked for fisheries and wildlife organisations. I have been engaged on several projects for research on wilderness expeditions and offshore islands. I enjoy sharing our Boandik country with visitors, and my love for the Great Southern Ocean encourages me to continually explore and enjoy the salty delights she has to offer. My passion for taking time to appreciate the finer details in nature is expressed on my tour.
