BridgeClimb’s Indigenous ‘Burrawa’ experience is back!
Burrawa is officially returning to BridgeClimb and will join the range of experiences on offer at the iconic tourism attraction. Conceptualised by Artistic Director Wesley Enoch, Burrawa invites Sydneysiders, families and friends to step through history with stories that span thousands of years to the present day.
Guided by Aboriginal storytellers, visitors will be encouraged to look out to sea through Aboriginal eyes; look down on the shores where Patyegarang taught William Dawes the language of Sydney; and learn the origins of the familiar place names that circle the water’s edge, Bennelong Point and Barangaroo.
BridgeClimb CEO David Hammon stated, ‘Operating on an internationally-adored icon, the Burrawa experience is a hallmark of our commitment to honour the knowledge and customs of Our First Nations People. This Indigenous storytelling Climb is an opportunity for all Australians to uncover and enjoy the immersion of Aboriginal stories that have guided what we know as the modern City of Sydney.’
The Burrawa Climb will run on our Summit Climb Route, journeying along the upper arch of the Bridge. The entire experience runs for a total of 3 hours.
Adults: $288 - includes a $10 donation to our charity partner, Tribal Warrior Aboriginal Corporation – a not for profit organisation whose mission is to spread and vitalise Aboriginal culture, and to provide economic and social stability.
The Burrawa Climb will run every last Saturday of each month with climb times departing twice a day at 9-10am and 2-3pm.
