For over 50,000 years, the Wadandi of the Busselton, Dunsborough and Margaret River areas of Australia’s south-west have walked this ancient land.

Koomal Dreaming is your opportunity to follow in their footsteps and experience Wadandi country through their eyes.

Wadandi custodian Josh “Koomal” Whiteland will introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic, personal interpretation.

Be moved by the skill and intensity of Josh’s didgeridoo playing & fire-making, taste native foods, discover bush medicine and meet the animals, plants and Dreaming spirits that have enriched the lives of Wadandi people since time began.

Koomal Dreaming provides an opportunity for visitors to experience Wadandi and Bibbulman country through the eyes of the traditional owners.

From his home base of 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, and takes visitors deep into Ngilgi Cave for a uniquely memorable didgeridoo cave experience.

This is an amazing experience that any visitor to the South West should make it their priority to enjoy. Josh is a fantastic storyteller/educator and is also a really nice and genuine guy. Spending time with him will leave a lasting impression on any guest that joins his tours. Learning about the Wadandi culture, native foods and bush medicine whilst also witnessing him play the didgeridoo in the beautiful Ngilgi Cave are all incredible experiences. As a local from Margaret River that also runs a tourism business I would highly recommend any visitor to the Margaret River region to book a tour with Josh and Koomal Dreaming as it will be the highlight of your holiday.

The tour was very interesting and was the perfect balance of learning about the local Aboriginal culture, tools and traditions, exploring the Ngili caves and trying delicious bush tucker. Josh is a great guide who is very knowledgable and kind in sharing his culture and traditions. Highly recommended! Michelle Chee
