The opportunity

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attraction’s two leading tourism drawcards Rottnest Island/Wadjemup and Kings Park/Kaarta Koomba wish to invite Expressions of Interest from Aboriginal people and their communities to deliver cultural tourism experiences.

Expressions of interest are invited from Aboriginal/Noongar people and communities to deliver Aboriginal cultural tourism experiences on Wadjemup/Rottnest Island and Kaarta Koomba/ Kings Park. This includes guided tours, workshops, performances and other cultural tourism activities. Future opportunities may also be offered at the Perth Zoological Authority site.

Ongoing Aboriginal tourism and cultural experience opportunities continue to be offered on lands managed by DBCA’s Parks and Wildlife Service in the broader Perth metropolitan area and throughout Western Australia’s national parks.

Please direct enquires to the respective Kings Park and Rottnest Island attraction’s representatives and prepare submissions as outlined in the documentation packages.

Premier Mark McGowan has announced the biggest shakeup of the public sector in decades with 40 per cent of Government departments to be amalgamated or abolished.

The major announcement surpasses the election commitment to reduce the number of departments by 20 per cent and includes a major reshuffle of chief executives.  It also comes ahead of the Service Priority Review that will deliver further structural changes and savings.
