Aboriginal Tourism

The City of Perth is helping to bring Yagan Square to life with a free celebration of the world’s oldest living culture every Friday night until June 2020.

Entitled Nyumbi, locals and visitors alike will be able to immerse themselves in Perth’s rich Nyoongar culture through traditional song and dance.

Working with DevelopmentWA, Tourism WA and the Western Australian Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC), the City of Perth is supporting Nyumbi with a $20,000 financial contribution.

The event builds on the success of the City of Perth and WAITOC’s Aboriginal tourism programs, developing cultural experiences for tourists and locals since 2017.

WAITOC Chief Executive Officer Robert Taylor said the relationship between WAITOC and the City of Perth was pivotal in providing authentic Aboriginal cultural experiences for visitors and tourists alike.
