Birabahn Cultural Trail


The Birabahn Cultural Trail on the Callaghan campus is a scenic bush walk where you can gain historical and cultural knowledge of the long association that Aboriginal people have with the University of Newcastle.

This application brings the trail to life with an abundance of hidden virtual features along the way for you to discover. The objects represent native flora, fauna, handcrafted objects and the four elements of earth, water, fire and air all within the natural environment – ready to be explored and uncovered.

The trail provides learning opportunities detailing the lifestyles and cultural practices of the Pambalong people who have occupied the landscape, living in balance with the wetlands, swamps and Hunter river.

The application features a badge collection system: Once the user has found all the objects, they unlock a completion badge.
