Discover Aboriginal Experiences collective welcomes two new members
15 November 2022
Mandingalbay Ancient Indigenous Tours in Tropical North Queensland and Saltwater Eco Tours on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast have joined Discover Aboriginal Experiences – a collective of quality, authentic Aboriginal-guided tourism offerings.
Mandingalbay Ancient Indigenous Tours hosts a number of memorable Traditional Owner-led experiences in the picturesque Mandingalbay Yidinji Indigenous Protected Area, accessed by a scenic boat ride from Cairns/Gimuy. Based in Mooloolaba, Saltwater Eco Tours pairs Indigenous culture with gourmet bush tucker-inspired dining on river cruises hosted on a beautifully restored historic sailing boat.
The Discover Aboriginal Experiences collective is part of Tourism Australia’s Signature Experiences of Australia program that promotes outstanding tourism experiences within a variety of special categories. This collection showcases a diversity of experiences delivered by the world’s oldest living cultures, creating memorable trips for adventure seekers, culture enthusiasts, foodies and nature lovers, ranging from exploring hidden rock art galleries to foraging for native delicacies, stand-up paddleboarding on culturally significant waterways to bedding down at wilderness lodges in serene natural settings.
These two new additions to the collective bring the membership to 46 businesses offering more than 160 Aboriginal-guided experiences. Aboriginal guides don’t just afford a unique means of bringing Australia’s landscapes to life. As the owners of the stories, they share with you, they provide a way to connect with Australian places and cultures quite unlike any other medium.
Each member of this collection is considered a world-class leader in Aboriginal tourism, representing local Aboriginal cultures with integrity and authenticity. Please see the following pages for further details on the two new additions to the collective.
