WAITOC announces Barraddict Fishing Charters as the fifth featured operator in a series of Aboriginal food and drink showcase experiences in WA 

Western Australia Indigenous Tourism Operators Council’s (WAITOC) Chairman, Doc Reynolds is pleased to feature another member as part of the Aboriginal Gourmet Experience series for 2014 in line with the recent launch of Restaurant Australia by Tourism Australia inviting the world to dinner.

Over the course of 2014, WAITOC will showcase ten Aboriginal Gourmet Experiences across Australia, from food and produce, seafood, food events, cafes and restaurants.

Fifth in this ten month series is WAITOC Aboriginal tourism operator member, Barraddict Sport Fishing Charters.  Kurt Williamson is a fully qualified Indigenous guide who has grown up fishing throughout the Kimberley his whole life.  He’s been guiding for over 10 years putting numerous clients onto their fish of a life time. He’s been an addict since landing his first barra at the age of seven.

One of the Kimberley's best kept secrets, Barraddict averages 285 days on the water along the spectacular coastline of the Kimberley.  His knowledge of the Derby and Kimberley region is extensive, including knowledge passed down from previous generations.  Fishing is a life passion for Kurt. 

Owner of Barraddict Sport Fishing Charters, Kurt said “there’s something for everyone who comes out with me on tour.  From fishing to mud crabbing or both, there’s nothing better than to see the enjoyment and excitement on people’s faces when they catch their prized fish and tasty mud crabs.  We go out surrounded by stunning scenery and I’m able to take them to secret places that no-one else knows about. There’s nothing better than to hear how they’re going to cook up their seafood to enjoy with family and friends back home.   If they’re lucky I share my recipes with them…”

Speaking of Barraddict Sport Fishing Charters, Simon Haigh, CEO of WAITOC said, "WAITOC's Aboriginal Gourmet Experience campaign is intended to highlight the unique food, drink and culture experiences that Aboriginal tourism operators have to offer in WA.  In recent times, we have seen the growing importance of culinary tourism as a way to immerse yourself in the culture of the destination that you're visiting.  The key attributes People, Produce and Place behind Tourism Australia's Restaurant Australia campaign provides a memorable experience for the tourists.  Culinary tourism is a great way to exchange culture and is growing in popularity.  Barraddict is a great example of an Aboriginal Gourmet Experience, using 'fresh' and local flavours to be experienced in one of the world's top destination for international visitors and by the sounds of it - more importantly a guaranteed catch!"
