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 us a while 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.

A healing and restorative bush camp experience in the heart of the Stirling Ranges.
Poornarti Aboriginal Tours invites you to come home, to a place and a time that feels full of vitality and curiously familiar. It is an ancient place, full of knowing and eternal wisdom. You will recognise it as something fleeting you’ve experienced before. Your soul yearns to live and unfurl in this wild place, and be seen, heard and understood by your fellow clan. This is the power of Soul Camp and it’s wilderness experience.
With an Aboriginal Elder as your host and guide, you will gain knowledge of indigenous truths. Invited Elders, facilitators, practitioners, mentors and people with expertise in play, ceremony, healing and nature connection, will guide our group at different times throughout the camp.
