Visitors to Rottnest now have the opportunity to experience traditional Aboriginal culture as part of new cultural tours on the island.
Go Cultural Aboriginal Tours and Experiences now offer visitors a walking tour to learn about Rottnest’s intriguing past and spiritual significance to Noongar people.
The 90-minute walking tour includes a Welcome to Country, traditional sand ceremony, and song and storytelling with your Aboriginal guide.
Aboriginal tourism opportunities are part of a broader plan by the WA Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions to encourage authentic cultural experiences and collaborations with Aboriginal businesses across Western Australia.
The addition of tours at popular holiday destinations is a response to demands from domestic and international visitors for authentic Aboriginal cultural experiences.
