New indigenous encounters introduced at Ayers Rock Resort

New indigenous encounters introduced at Ayers Rock Resort
February 23, 2014

Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia has added to its portfolio of indigenous encounters at Ayers Rock Resort with a series of activities to be introduced from 1st April 2014.

The new activities include traditional local Inma dance and welcome to country, dot painting workshops, Aboriginal campfire tours, performances from cultural dancers, an Indigenous dance workshop, a segment of traditional Aboriginal games, a session with the didgeridoo, spear and boomerang throwing lessons and a team building activity based around boomerang painting.

In addition to Indigenous Encounters, Ayers Rock Resort now offers conference organisers a corporate social responsibility educational component to their program. This offers delegates a deeper understanding into the Indigenous Training and Development activities that are carried out through the National Indigenous Training Academy, as well as the efforts of the Mutitjulu Foundation.

A minute presentation hosted by the management team and a traditional Anangu owner gives the opportunity to learn about specific community projects, training initiatives and interaction with an Anangu representative.

Introducing the program, Voyages Executive General Manager Sales, Marketing and Distribution Ray Stone explained "the positive response from conference delegates to the trial of this presentation was so strong that we knew it would be a successful regular option."
