RDAWEP is extremely proud of the work undertaken by Aboriginal communities and organisations on the Far West of Eyre Peninsula to produce the first Aboriginal Tourism Strategy in South Australia.
Aboriginal culture is the world’s oldest continuous culture. Small but growing Aboriginal tourism ventures on the Far West are taking their ancient culture and sharing, offering insights and experiences to visitors both from within Australia and overseas. The benefits are many.
If you haven’t visited the Head of the Bight, Maralinga, Yalata, Scotdesco or Ceduna Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre, then put them on your destination list.
The collaboration to bring this Strategy to life demonstrates the willingness and increasing opportunities for Aboriginal tourism in South Australia and we sincerely hope this is the first of many regional strategies and partnerships to come.
