The Aboriginal Tourism Development Program has been developed to help grow Aboriginal tourism in Western Australia. It is funded by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program and implemented by Tourism WA and Western Australian Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC).
Njaki Njaki Aboriginal Cultural Tours is a proud recipient of a grant, which will be used to increase the visibility and accessibility of Aboriginal culture on their traditional lands in the Wheatbelt.
The Aboriginal Tourism Development Program is designed to increase the value of tourism in WA to $12 billion by 2020.
Western Australia has a strong and rich Aboriginal history. The RAC recently named their top ten Aboriginal experiences across the State, and we are proud to have made the list. See the full list here.
This region is home to the Njaki Njaki Nyoongar people.
The Njaki Njaki Nyoongar people traditional lands cover the area from Lake King in the south, to Kulin in the west, Trayning in the north and to the land east of Hyden and Narembeen.
As a visitor, we ask that you pay respect to the land and the places you choose to visit. Please remember and respect the cultural values of these significant places and understand that Aboriginal people continue to have strong connections and a spiritual relationship not only to the places but also the ecological and geographical environment.
The many granite outcrops, waterways, land formations and flora and fauna within the region hold much cultural significance to the Traditional Owners through a continued relationship that spans over thousands of years.
“Please remember that each step you take today is in the footprints of our Ancestors.”
