Have you stumbled across a shell midden, sifted through the shards of pearled abalone shell and wondered whether that sharp wedge of stone, coloured differently from others was an implement used by locals many moons ago? You may have marvelled at the stonework of primitive fish farms along your home coastline that still work to trap fish on the right tide?
Sometimes I wonder if I have crossed into sacred territory of these ancient folk with their place-centric spirited ways (many caves close to home that are now blocked to the public were a highlight on walks when I was a child); and that is how I have come to notice these details of our local area; as if a spell was cast, to awaken the inner tribal!
Some ‘tribal’ places in Tasmania include; Rocky Cape National Park and Sandy Cape in the Tarkine. Freycinet Penninsula on the east coast also has many secret beaches for soulful shell seekers.
Share some favourite places that get your imagination going ‘tribal’.
