Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation has received a major funding from the WA State Government to help with the plans for a tourism area of the corporation in the Murujuga National Park of Pilbara.

 

For the development of the area in Conzinc Bay, $1.3 million has been contributed within the Park and will include the Murujuga Living Knowledge Centre, a jetty, camping grounds, day facilities, access roads and other related services.

 

“This funding will help us to realise our tourism dream for Murujuga; to celebrate our unique culture and natural environment, raise the bar for Aboriginal tourism across the region, and support our current bid for World Heritage Listing,” said Murujuga CEO Mr Peter Jeffries.

 

Mr Jeffries explained that this financial support will push forward the project.

 

“The Murujuga Living Knowledge Centre and tourism precinct is a ground-breaking project that represents a huge opportunity for our people to share their culture, land and stories with the world,” he said.

 

A main aim of the project will be to share information in terms of local Indigenous culture and showcase its rock art collection.

 

Murujuga National Park organizes the most diverse rock art collection in the world, with few sites in the Park holding thousands of images.

 

Also, Mr. Jeffries provided a detailed business case that would get finalised with the fund along with preliminary planning and design for the development.

 

“The project will also provide employment opportunities for our people to work on country, strengthening their links to their culture,” Mr Jeffries said.

 

Murujuga National Park is situated within the Burrup Peninsula and Dampier Archipelago National Heritage Listed site.
