According to recent Tourism WA data, 78 per cent of visitors to Western Australia are looking for an Aboriginal encounter of some kind.

Kaarta Koomba has been an important place for Wadjuk Nyoongar people for thousands of years. With spiritual and cultural connections to this land, it offers a rich Aboriginal history and cultural stories to share with local people and tourists from around the world.
