Songspirals is a rare opportunity to connect with the living tradition of women's songlines, as recounted by Yolngu women from far north Australia. Aboriginal Australian cultures are the oldest living cultures on earth and at the heart of Aboriginal cultures is song.

For Yolngu people from North East Arnhem Land, women and men play different roles in bringing songlines to life, yet the vast majority of what has been published is about men's place in songlines. Songspirals is a rare opportunity for outsiders to experience Aboriginal women's role in crying the songlines in a very authentic and direct form.

Gay'wu Group of Women is the 'dilly bag women's group' who offer the incredible and intimate Gay’Wu - The Dilly Bag Women's Tour available on Welcome to Country.
