Two Indigenous Tourism Projects receive Grants

Recently Arnhem Land received a large government grant to develop the Yolngu Cultural Tourism Masterplan in a bid to boost the aboriginal tourist experience. Now another grant has been given to the theme park Dreamworld in order to bring the indigenous culture into the minds of the masses. Australia’s fascinating Aboriginal culture has always been a source of much study and tourist interest, and Dreamworld plan to use the grant to add an indigenous experience to Australia’s largest theme park on the Gold Coast. This investment demonstrates how important Aboriginal culture is to the country. Chief Executive John Lee from the Tourism and Transport Forum stated that, “Aboriginal culture is one of Australia’s key points of difference”, a difference which makes it a destination with a fascinating and unique history. Our escorted Australia tours are ideal for exploring the culture of Australia. Whether ancient or modern, Aboriginal or city-centred, tours of the country take visitors to all kinds of fascinating areas. Image credit: pikous (
