We then board the bus for a short trip to the original homestead site where we introduce you to James Cassady and his family who were the first European settlers on Mungalla. As you view the remnants of the “old Mungalla site” hear the pioneering stories of these first white settlers and view old pictures of this historic site and let your thoughts drift back in time and imagine how it was in its glory days. Here you will discover Cassady’s role in the development of large areas of Queensland and visit the grave of Cassady and his son.
We also explain the often brutal confrontation between European settlers and Nywaigi Aboriginal people and the role the Cassady family played in protecting our people.
We again board the bus to return to the homestead to experience the amazing Captive Lives story. After the tour enjoy a chat with Nywaigi storytellers.
