Aboriginal tourism in South Australia

Aboriginal tourism involves a range of experiences such as song, music, dance, storytelling, art, accommodation, guided tours, sites, artefacts and culturally enriched hospitality.

We are committed to supporting Aboriginal tourism through a cooperative approach.

To do this, we will focus on the following four key objectives:

  1. Encourage investment in new, and enhance existing, Aboriginal tourism products, experiences and activation of natural assets.
  2. Provide industry capability building opportunities for new and existing Aboriginal tourism operators and ensure quality service, products and experiences are delivered to visitors.
  3. Foster strong partnerships and build meaningful relationships between community groups, private investors and local, state and federal governments.
  4. Promote and market Aboriginal Tourism to South Australia’s key domestic and international markets.
