Wajaana Yaam & Caring for Country

Philosophy and core values:

Being committed to revitalising culture and to build an economic future for Aboriginal owned and operated tourism products.

We do this through not only reinvesting directly in the community and its people but by also excelling in our tourism product offering. WYAT is Ecotourism certified and Recognising Our Culture Certified, through Eco Tourism Australia.

Ways we promote sustainability:

  • We minimise waste, implement recycling and use recycled materials whenever possible.
  • We only use reusable cups/drink bottles and food packaging on our tours that have food included.
  • We think before printing any business & personal documents.
  • We support local community fundraising events and charities including Bularri Muurlay Nyanggan Aboriginal Corporation, One Mob Radio and other local community events/businesses.
  • We take any rubbish we see on tour and verbally encourage our guest to support in caring for country with simple things in their personal lives (Recycling appropriately, not using one time use plastics, taking the option to offset carbon emissions when travelling).
  • We use Marine Friendly Sunscreen when needed.
  • We highlight the ‘Leave nothing, take nothing’ saying on our tours.
