Did you know larapuna is the Aboriginal name for the area of Tasmania's north-east coast that includes Eddystone Point and Bay of Fires!?
Known worldwide for its clear waters, white sand beaches and the bright orange lichen covered boulders, this amazing landscape has been home to pakana (Tasmanian Aboriginal people) for tens of thousands of years.
This country was visited seasonally by many tribal groups, with ceremony and trade playing an important part in their gatherings. Returned to the Aboriginal community in 2006, larapuna continues to be culturally important to today's pakana.
Our new patches pay homage to this amazing landscape and are designed and made right here in Tassie. Quality iron-on patches that are perfect for your backpack or jacket!
To celebrate the launch of this patch we donated $1000 to Seed, Australia’s first Indigenous youth climate network.
