The giant opal

Quote

Come and admire this giant 253 kg opal! You’ll find it at the entrance of a hut evoking the gold rush and the miners who flocked to Australia en masse towards the end of the 19th century.

The Black Boys

Plants with very slow growth that can reach a height of three to four meters. A black ‘trunk’ from which emerges a large bunch of stiff and yet flexible grasses, this is what these desert inhabitants look like!

The red earth of the Aboriginals

Quote

In the heart of Pairi Daiza, within the dedicated sanctuary to Aboriginal culture, stretches a unique and symbolic landscape: the red land of the Aboriginals. This land, authentically reproduced to depict the vast expanses of Australia, transports visitors to a world where ancient history and spirituality converge.

Beneath their feet, the red land, infused with the deepest ochre, recounts the thousand-year-old legends of indigenous peoples. Every grain of sand evokes an ancient tale, every hue recalls the profound connection between humans and nature.

Surrounded by lush vegetation, the red land of the Aboriginals becomes a meeting place with the traditions and wisdom of Australia’s first inhabitants. Visitors are invited to explore this meaningful landscape, uncover the secrets of Aboriginal culture, and feel the spiritual connection that binds people to the land.

In Pairi Daiza, the red land of the Aboriginals becomes much more than just a backdrop; it becomes living evidence of ancient history and a gateway to a deeper understanding of the relationship between humans and nature.
