Budj Bim Tours is an authentic, indigenous owned tourism company that offers exclusive guided tours through the Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape, in south-west Victoria. Budj Bim Tours operate out of Heywood, Victoria and itineraries range from two hours to full days.

You will experience the history and culture of the Gunditjmara people from a Gunditjmara guide. During your tour you will see stone house sites, reconstructed stone houses and stone aquaculture systems that are over 6000 years old. Learn about native food plants, and how the Gunditjmara people engineered the landscape to ensure that they could live a settled, rather than nomadic lifestyle.

For an authentic experience, consider adding a bush tucker tasting to your tour. Seasonal options include warrigal greens, kangaroo, smoked eel, water parsnip and more. For large group bookings and business events, the Winda Mara Dancers are available to be booked.
