An Aboriginal group in the Australian state of Western Australia will be the first tourists to ask money to their area. That write to local media Sunday.
The Wunumbal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation is a traditional owner of the isolated land north of Broome, on the northwestern coast. The foundation was started with money from the passengers of cruise ships, the spectacular waterfalls and Aboriginal art on the rock faces want to come and see.
This season ships 200 Australian dollars or 134 euro per sleeper ship and pay, but by 2019 each visitor 152 dollars or 102 euro have to pay.
The public broadcaster ABC reported the original inhabitants that the money will be used to Aborginals from remote areas to the tourists. That way they can them greetings, waste pick up, and the cultural sites protect.
The cruiseschiptoerisme to the spectacular secluded coastal area is greatly increased, with damage of the rock art and litter on the beaches as a result. On many special and sacred places tourists are therefore not allowed.
