This enduring collaboration is believed to have enhanced visitors’ understanding and appreciation of indigenous culture and has also left a lasting impression on the local tourism sector.

The journey began in 1993 when Charles and Pip Woodward joined forces with Donald and Brian Enoch, along with the current Pamagirri Manager Elder William Enoch Senior.

With the support of the late Djabugay Elder Lyn Hobbler, they established the Rainforestation Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience.

This venture has provided a platform for local indigenous people to share their heritage, history, and stories.

Ben Woodward said the continued importance of reconciliation and the celebration of indigenous culture was part of CaPTA’s ethos.

“The CaPTA Group is built upon mutual respect, harmonious relationships, and a commitment to encourage all members of our team to learn about and celebrate the culture of our Traditional Owners,” he said.

“For the past 30 years, our families have worked together to drive indigenous tourism, and I believe that this partnership will endure, educating others on indigenous culture, and fostering reconciliation and mutual respect for generations to come.”
