Buluwai Country Tourism

Traveller’s Map: Buluwai Country Ancient Wonderland

Buluwai Indigenous Corporation (BIC) is developing unique Indigenous-led nature-based experiences from Kuranda – Speewah – Davies Creek – Emerald Creek.

We believe Destination Kuranda has a multitude of natural assets that visitors from around the world have and will continue to visit in the future. In the meantime, we anticipate more regional, state and national visitation to Far North Queensland as International travel continues to remain restricted for now due to COVID.

BIC would like to join with community groups to promote Nature-based and Indigenous-led tourism in our region.

Buluwai Country Aspirations 2020-2030

This collection of information has been prepared with Buluwai Traditional Owner Willie Brim (Katjiraka/Taipan Clan) as an interpretation of his aspirations for Buluwai Country. Willie Brim has extensive knowledge of FNQ tourism and education sectors and has long recognised and been instrumental in developing cultural programs locally for over 40 years.

National Park Estates (in this case World Heritage Area) are the last pristine tribal landscapes. Building a positive future for Bama people to work on-country, taking care of these landscapes, is not only necessary but integral to moving forward with the best landcare options available.

Bama people are very proud of their ancestor’s stunning country and going forward want to share the special nature places, cultural experiences and activities with visitors.
