About the tour

Aboriginals have lived in Australia for 40-60 thousand years. Long before Europeans settled in 1788. Their culture is enriched with unique stories, art, rituals, and music. Indigenous art is centered on storytelling. The beautifully unique and abstract paintings, instruments, weapons, and ornaments are used as a chronicle to share the history of their land, culture, and mythology. Join Alex as we explore different Aboriginal Art galleries, trails, and exhibitions and learn more about the Australian Indigenous people’s rich culture. This tour will take place in different locations in order to diversify the experience so that no two trips are alike!


Meet Alexander

Alexander

Alexander wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). “Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. Whether it’s in the form of acting, writing or showing people around my captivating city. It feels great to express my passions in so many different ways” Alex says, while sipping on a decaf soy latte (a very common beverage in Melbourne, also known as Australia's coffee capital). Alexander believes that it would be a waste and disservice to his fellow humans to not show them around his backyard (well, not his actual backyard, but you get the picture). He’s dedicated to sharing his city’s beauty and history, and once and for all proving to people that kangaroos don’t just bounce around everywhere. Alexander has been running tours for the last 4 years, with his most popular tour being Melbourne’s Hidden Penguins (there you go, saved you a trip to Antarctica!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker and blog writer.

Really interesting. Some pieces really made you think. Thankful for the opportunity to see these art pieces and appreciate them in a museum that I may never get to go to in person. Thanks, Alex!

Lovely tour of an aboriginal art gallery. Alex shows art brilliantly, tales time to show the pieces of art, reads the information about some of them, answers 90% of our questions, he’s respectful and knowledgeable about aboriginal culture and lots of fun. Always a great tour with Alex. He’s a popular guide for many reasons and his tours are highly recommended.

Loved the boldness of the art, and it was great to guess what some of the pictures were depicting. It showed how important nature was to the indigenous people (something modern man has overlooked).
