Koomal Dreaming

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Based in Dunsborough, Koomal Dreaming provides an opportunity for visitors to experience Wadandi and Bibbulmun country through the eyes of the traditional owners. Guests have the opportunity to taste native foods, learn about bush medicine, and meet the animals, plants and Dreaming spirits that have enriched the lives of the indigenous Wadandi and Bibbulmun people since time began.

“Koomal” is the traditional Aboriginal name of Wadandi man Josh Whiteland. Passionate, learned and spiritually aware, Josh has a personal commitment to sharing his deep knowledge of his culture and lore with visitors. He created Koomal Dreaming so he could communicate at least part of his profound connection with his land and his people with guests from around Australia and the world.
