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. 
Cultural Group tours along with Aboriginal Food foraging and tastings (minimum 10) are available on request at Ngilgi Cave as well as the stunning Cape Naturaliste location in the Margaret River region.

10 of my family members participated in the twilight tour of Ngilgi Cave. The cave and the Didgeridoo playing and story telling by Josh was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Josh and team for an excellent afternoon outing.

I had the pleasure of joining a group of colleagues for the Koomal Dreaming Experience this morning, and I must say, it was an absolutely captivating adventure. Our guide, Josh, deserves special praise for his engaging presence throughout the experience. His deep knowledge and passion for the indigenous culture shone through as he skillfully led us on this remarkable journey. His storytelling abilities brought the history and traditions of the region to life, allowing us to truly immerse ourselves in the cultural richness of the area. The activities themselves were nothing short of superb. From the mesmerizing bushwalk through the ancient land, and exploring the cave to the mesmerizing didgeridoo performance, every aspect was carefully crafted to provide an authentic and meaningful encounter. What truly impressed me was the versatility of the Koomal Dreaming Experience. I would highly recommend it not only to solo or couple travellers seeking a unique and immersive adventure but also as a fantastic team-building activity. Our group of colleagues found the experience to be an exceptional opportunity to bond, learn, and appreciate the cultural heritage together. If you're searching for an extraordinary encounter that combines education, entertainment, and a deep appreciation for indigenous culture, look no further than the Koomal Dreaming Experience. Prepare to be captivated, inspired, and forever changed by this truly remarkable journey.

Shared this wonderful experience with my 13yo daughter and it's one of the most lovely and memorable things we have done within Australia. I would love every West Australian and every visitor here to have the privilege of experiencing this. Spending this time on country and Josh's knowledge as a proud Wadandi man was just incredible and I've been recommending it to everyone. I've even referred the business to a local travel agent I know who is looking for new ways for her clients to experience WA now that we are dealing with the challenges of the pandemic. We did the sunset tour which finished with Josh playing the didgeridoo inside Ngilgi Cave which was so haunting we had chills. Next time we plan to do one of the longer tours as we have heard Josh is an amazing cook and we are more intrigued with bush tucker and just being able to understand this country better from the vast knowledge and experience of its traditional custodians.

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!
