Visitors to Cairns will make even greater connections with Aboriginal culture in Queensland’s World Heritage-listed Barron Gorge National Park thanks to a new Australian Government supported guided walk.
Minister for Tourism, Martin Ferguson AM MP, today congratulated the Djabugay Native Title Aboriginal Corporation on creating a unique tourism experience with $17,500 of funding from the T-QUAL Grant program.
“The tour showcases the beauty of the traditional lands of the Djabugay people and provides a fascinating insight into the history, language, culture and traditions of the area.”
Senator for Queensland, Jan McLucas, welcomed the funding as a positive boost to the local tourism industry.
“The project operators matched the Australian Government commitment to the project, which is located adjacent to the Skyrail Cableway outside Cairns,” Senator McLucas said.
“As well as a valuable new tourism opportunity, the project has created four new jobs for tour guides from the local Indigenous community.”
