“Culture Connect is about connecting people with Aboriginal culture.”

Our aim is to take people on a journey, not only physically but also spiritually.

We hope the landscape comes alive in their mind and they can understand and feel the story.
With each experience our guests gain a wealth of knowledge about Aboriginal heritage, culture, traditions and beliefs from the Traditional Owners.
We believe that the future for Aboriginal people to be empowered is to support business ventures on homelands.
We recognise that Tourism and Education is a way to keep traditional and contemporary cultural practices alive.
Culture Connect offers people unique Aboriginal cultural experiences throughout Australia.
