Tourism Naturally is working with the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation to develop a tour within the Murujuga National Park at Deep Gorge as the start of MAC’s tourism journey. It is proposed that the tour would be part of the Murujuga Cultural and Environmental Services unit and operational later in September 2018. It would be delivered by the MAC Land and Sea Unit Rangers and other guides identified from within the MAC membership and named Murujuga Cultural Experience.
Murujuga National Park covers an area of 4,913ha and is located on the Burrup Peninsula near Dampier. The area is considered to host the largest concentration of ancient rock art in the world, possibly dating back more than 30,000 years. The word
Murujuga in local Aboriginal language is thought to mean ‘hip bone sticking out’, referring to the peninsula’s alignment on the Pilbara coast. Murujuga National Park is Western Australia’s 100th national park, created in January 2013. It is also unique in
that it is the first jointly managed national park in the State.
The tours will start in September 2018. Contact Liz at Tourism Naturally for more information email@example.com
