Journey Through the Kimberley - Traces Ancient Cultural Tracks

Jul 18, 2016 -- Posted by : admin

Ruggedly picturesque, the vast wilderness landscapes of the Kimberley region in Western Australia house a rich cultural history and a wide range of Aboriginal tourism businesses - offering visitors a unique opportunity to immerse in one of the oldest living cultures on earth.

Western Australia's Kimberley region covers an area of over 400,000 square km (twice the size of Victoria). Around 40% of the region's population are Aboriginal people, comprising a vast range of language groups, each with their own unique story and heritage.

The Western Australian Indigenous Tourism Operators Council's (WAITOC's) new brochure - Journey Through the Kimberley - showcases over 30 Aboriginal cultural experiences, guiding visitors back through time, exploring one of the oldest landscapes on earth.

The journey stretches from the outback town of Kununurra in the East, to the frontier pearling town of Broome and the Dampier Peninsula in the West. Characterized by pristine coastal seascapes, steep-sided mountain ranges and ancient cave systems, it explores spectacular rock art sites, cultural legends and traces of early Aboriginal lifestyles.

The free 6-page brochure is available at Visitor Centres throughout Western Australia, at over 50 outlets in Broome (hotel lobbies, tourist info stands, car rental companies etc.) and more than 180 outlets in Perth.
