Meet the Josh – Founder and Owner of Koomal Dreaming
Australia is steeped in history, a lot of it is indigenous culture and a great way for people to learn about it is on a Koomal Dreaming tour in the South West of Western Australia. For over 50,000 years, the Wadandi and Bibbulman people of the Busselton, Dunsborough and Margaret River areas of Australia’s south-west have walked this ancient land and Koomal Dreaming gives people the opportunity to follow in their footsteps and experience Wadandi and Bibbulman country through their eyes.
On our Adelaide to Perth tour, Wadandi custodian Josh “Koomal” Whiteland will introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic and personal interpretation. We are proud to have known and worked with Josh for a long time. He is a very special person who started his business because of the values that he had about his family, his history and the region. He lives and breathes exactly what he says and when you meet him you can feel his passion and feel his culture, as he takes you on a journey to a very special place.
Sometimes indigenous experiences can be a forced and put on for the consumer but with Josh at Koomal Dreaming it is authentic, as that is his way of life. He and his family still live off the land in the region and from his home base in Dunsborough, Josh provides guests with the opportunity to taste native foods, discover bush medicine, and experience traditional fire lighting. Josh recounts stories of the Dreaming spirits that relate to his traditional area.
