Our camel trekking tours are all about the blending of adventure and culture for an outback tour like no other. Your experience of the stunning Pilbara region around the Karijini National Park is enriched with the weaving of local knowledge, history and stories.
One of the traditional owners groups of the Pilbara region are the Yinhawangka people. Roma, the co-director of Pilbara Camel Trekking, has a deep connection to her country’s culture, customs and lores and a strong desire to share this amazing culture with others. Githang’s Wonga Cultural Awareness program (“Githang” being Roma’s traditional name, and “wonga” meaning to talk or speak) allows her to combine her degree in teaching with her passion for communicating the stories and knowledge of the Yinhawangka people.
During our outback trek tours , you will gain a familiarity of the Indigenous culture and history of the Pilbara. Many of our staff are family members who are keen to impart their knowledge of country, the extended family relationships, local history and stories, as well as post colonial times in the region.
You will also gain an amazing insight into local bush tucker foods and bush medicine. Assist your guides with meal preparation to see, feel, taste and smell local ingredients of the area to learn to cook with traditional Indigenous foods and methods, with a modern twist. Learn how to make mouth watering, fluffy damper bread smeared with melting butter, roast kangaroo tails over the coals and relax with a soothing cup of billy tea.
Outback tours with Pilbara Camel Trekking are about more than just experiencing the rugged and unique natural beauty of the Pilbara, with its stunning red sands, inviting water holes and breathtaking landscape. Gain a first hand perspective on a rich and ancient culture, with customs, lore and stories that have been passed down for generations.
