Warami / Budyeri Kamaru Eora : Hello Sydney

Warami is Dharug and Budyeri Kamaru Dharwal for Hello

I conduct four walking tours of the city and Watsons Bay.

I also offer three virtual reality interactive tours. and also

Seven Power Point Zoom or Face to Face Presentations

We call this place Sydney. The Dharawal people, who were and are custodians of country around the harbour, identified themselves as Eora (pronounced “yura“). We believe they meant “the People” or “Of This Place”, derived from Ee (yes) and ora (this place).

Hello to Sydney and hello to the Eora

My name is Gavin Crawford and I’m a retired publisher and historian who volunteers with the Australian National Maritime Museum as a guide, with the Wayside Chapel in the cafe and Aboriginal Project, and with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

The cost of my “walks” is a donation to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, The Wayside Chapel or The Australian National Maritime Museum.

I live in Dharug and Dharawal Country, and acknowledge the wisdom of their neighbours, the Wiradjuri, who practice “Yindyamarra Winhanganha”

“The wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in … to show respect, to go slowly, to take care and to think before acting. Living with Yindyamarra, is living in harmony and respect with each other and country.”

I observe Yindyamarra Winhanganha when presenting walking tours of Sydney: always was and always will be Dharug and Dharawal Country.


Warami Eora:Hello Sydney offers four walking”experiences” in Sydney. Not the usual tours, but an introduction to an 80,000 year old culture and it’s resiliance in a modern world. We will explore the life of Dharug people before and after of the arrival of Europeans, and the colonials themselves; criminals, gaolers, freebooters and those in search of a better life.
