Cultural Experiences

The history of Indigenous people on the Dampier Peninsula is thought to date back as far as 5,000 years and the communities on the north tip of the peninsula include those of the Bardi (land) and Jawi (island) coastal Indigenous groups. These local people retain a particularly special relationship with their land and sea that encompasses in-depth knowledge of bush food, medicine and traditional hunting and fishing practices.
