Aboriginal Tours & Experiences

Here you’ll find rock art older than the Colosseum and the greatest concentration of petroglyphs in the world.

Traverse one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers and deepen your understanding of Aboriginal culture in the Kimberley and Pilbara with unique and compelling tours and experiences on Country. 

Discover and explore Aboriginal culture with local tour operators and guides who will ensure you return home with a renewed appreciation for the world’s oldest living culture.

When you journey to the North West you’ll notice things are different here—what makes this region so memorable is the consistent reminder that this land is Ancient; and the people that roamed over 75,000 years ago passed down their songs, stories and practices generation to generation through to today. Rich Aboriginal culture is accessible for all visitors interested in learning more and the experiences on offer are unlike those you can access elsewhere.

With so many experiences to choose from, the hardest decision will be where to start. We recommend you include at least one day tour in your trip. Why not join a day or extended tour and learn about rock art, bush tucker, medicine and spiritual beliefs. Go mud-crabbing, fishing or enjoy a range of wilderness camps, eco retreats and community stays at some of the region's most breathtaking locations.
