The project I am working on for my Directed Study involves the creation of an interpretive brochure focusing on the Ngaut Ngaut (Devon Downs) rock shelter which is located near Nildottie, a small town 45 minutes drive from Mannum. My industry partners for this project are both Dr Amy Roberts, a lecturer here at Flinders, and the Mannum Aboriginal Community. Lyn Leader-Elliott is also providing advice for the project.
My task is part of a larger project which Amy Roberts has undertaken in partnership with the Mannum Aboriginal Community to provide better interpretive materials, both on and off-site, to the tour guides that regularly take visitors to Ngaut Ngaut rock shelter.So far, I have mainly done a good deal of reading regarding the site and its history. I have also compiled a number of example brochures into a folder. I took this folder along when myself, Amy Roberts and Lyn Leader-Elliot attended a consultation meeting at Nildottie with some of the Ngaut Ngaut tour guides this past Monday. I’ll detail this meeting in my next post.
