Illa Kuri
Sacred Dreaming Path


This sacred path representing the
Illa Kuri journey is where initiates
walked through the Claisebrook
valley on the way to their homes.
The path leads from one freshwater
lake to another.These are
represented by the twelve granite
rocks that stand as silent sentries.

The names of the tribes and totems
are there to guide you through the
sacred Illa Kuri dreaming and the
sacred totem emblems which gave
the indigenous people their identity.
The sacred dreaming path is never
ending.
