With ongoing strong demand from 81 percent of visitors for a succinct place to learn about the Aboriginal people and their ongoing culture, the Western Australian government has made a firm commitment to building an Aboriginal Cultural Centre, with the opening planned in 2028.

WA Premier Mark McGowan said the site was both culturally appropriate for the Whadjuk Noongar people of the land and an easy location for tourists to visit. “We want tourists from Australia and around the world to come and visit and understand and enjoy that experience,” he said.

The Centre will provide a prominent space to acknowledge Aboriginal culture and heritage, but also a space for Aboriginal people all over the state to educate and share their stories.

The new Cultural Centre will be a major player in the Western Australian tourism sector, endorsing Western Australia as a peak destination for authentic Aboriginal Tourism. With many other cultural centres to compete with and learn from, this will be a place of celebration, truth-telling, healing, and reconciliation.
