Kaya Wanju – Hello and welcome to Noongar country. The South West of Western Australia is the country of the Noongar people. For thousands of years before European settlement, Aboriginal people lived in harmony with the land. The earth is their “Boodja”, mother, and that is our Mother Earth.
Poornarti Aboriginal Tours will bring the country of the Noongar people to life for you through deeply immersive, intimate and interactive experiences and activities.
“You were not born into this world, you were born from and by it, as a leaf from a tree, and as a breeze from the sky….”
Poornarti Aboriginal Tours invites you to reconnect to the essence of country and yourselves, to travel and camp with them awhile and learn of the ancient indigenous culture of this land. Listen up to stories of Dreamtime and culture, step upon the earth and dance, embrace the elements, yarn by the fire, taste the tucker, sense the wind, the water, the heat and the smoke, feel the power of ceremony and learn of Noongar ways of life, spirit and art.

The Stirling Ranges iconic landscape is the spiritual homeland of the Koreng people; the Aboriginal tribe that inhabited the area, for many thousands of years before European settlement.
On this full day excursion with Poornarti Aboriginal Tours, your guide is Joey Williams, an Elder and Lore Man of the Koreng people and a talented artist. As a child he lived in the bush with his family and the traditional knowledge of living in harmony with Mother Earth, was passed on to him. To gain an intimate knowledge of this country, what better way is there to experience it, than through the eyes of the original inhabitants, who lived and thrived here for millennia?Carpark Family Friendly Public Toilet
