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. A limited number of tours are available at the stunning Cape Naturaliste location in Margaret River.

Providing a deep connection and lasting memories, Josh will also provide a deeper appreciation of the beautiful and inspiring Cape to Cape region.

I was recently visiting Yallingup for a week and this tour was my highlight of my time there.... which is saying a lot given how beautiful everything in this part of the world is! Josh from Koomal Dreaming was incredibly knowledgeable and was so generous in answering all the questions we all had. This tour is a 'must-do' for any one visiting the area ... You walk away with a renewed perspective and deeper apprection of the land you are walking on. I would do this tour again and plan to bring friends and family along next time. Catherine Green

My partner and I attended Josh's Twilight Didgeridoo Cave Tour and had a fantastic time. Josh's knowledge was incredible and gave us a new perspective on the Australian Bushland. The didgeridoo performance in the heart of the cave was breathtaking. Highly recommend to anyone who is visiting the South West Region! Thank you for sharing this amazing experience with us, Josh!
