Submissions offering a variety of experiences have been received and are now being assessed by an expert panel. 

It is anticipated new Aboriginal experiences for Kings Park visitors will be available by April 2019.

The call for Aboriginal businesses to provide new experiences for visitors comes in response to growing demands from domestic and international visitors for Aboriginal cultural experiences. 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.
