What better time to book a journey of Aboriginal cultural discovery than NAIDOC Week? And just to get your shortlist buzzing, we’ve found a wealth of authentic holiday options which celebrate the world’s oldest living culture in memorable style.
Tourism Australia’s signature ‘Discover Aboriginal Experiences’ collection encompasses over 170 diverse and inspiring adventures in both regional and urban locales. Each is guided by Aboriginal people who bring the landscape and culture to life with their own personal stories.
We have eyes on the multi-day wakalina walk through Tassie’s magnificent Bay of Fires region, cultural home of the palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) people, or an exclusive escape to Dirk Hartog Island and the Shark Bay World Heritage Area (off the coast of WA) with Wula Gura Nyinda eco tours. Our new favourite find? A ‘dune sliding’ cultural quad bike tour near Port Stephens with Sand Dune Adventures which offers an exhilarating insight into the local Worimi culture.
Always was, always will be.
Couples will love: deepening their connection to Australia with an unforgettable #holidayathome experience.
