Fraser Island and other aboriginal and Torres Strait islander communities can soak in indigenous tourism experiences

Published on : Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Tourists to World Heritage Listed Fraser Island and other aboriginal and Torres Strait islander communities would be able to engross themselves in cultural experiences, guided walking tours and a step back in time to know about the ancient ways of life.


Abundant new experiences are in the offing by a dedicated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tourism industry body in Queensland, which is tapping into the growing demand for indigenous tourism.


Queensland tourism industry representatives embarked on a road trip around the state, collaborating with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities from the Cape to Brisbane for promoting distinctive experiences.


Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s deputy chair and Quandamooka man Cameron Costello said that the state has a huge scope in leading the country in cultural tourism offerings.


Mr. Costello said, “The cultural awakening within the tourism sector is an important part of the process. There’s always been a desire for enhanced Indigenous experiences, but more and more domestic tourists are wanting to understand and learn the rich stories that we have, the sense of place and identity.”


“We’ve visited Brisbane and Barcaldine, Longreach, Mossman and Cairns and Hervey Bay and Bundaberg which has been amazing to speak to traditional owners, Indigenous tourism operators, key stakeholders and local councils,” he said.
