Where desert meets the ocean…
Long before Europeans landed and settled in the Shark Bay area, the land and waters of Monkey Mia and surrounds provided a strong livelihood for the Nhanda and Malgana people.
Hundreds of years later Wula Guda Nyinda Aboriginal Cultural Tours provide the ultimate enriching experience of the Indigenous culture, history and tradition to visitors of Monkey Mia in Shark Bay, Western Australia.
Owned and operated by Darren “Capes” Capewell, a descendant of the Nhanda and Malgana people, the tours are the only Indigenous experience in Gutharraguda (Shark Bay), and aim to foster an understanding of the natural land, wildlife, stories and traditions of the region.
“Learn the secrets of my people and how we relate to the land, ocean and spirit of country,” said Capes.
"When you visit Monkey Mia it is easy to ‘see’ country, but to truly take something away with you – you need to feel the spirit of country. This is what I share with visitors. People walk away with a deeper appreciation of what country means to my people,” said Capes.
You will be captivated by the deep Aboriginal connections to Gutharraguda as you discover the secrets that have seen the land flourish for thousands of years. Encounter the landscape’s natural beauty and appreciate the Wula Guda Nyinda teachings of the profound relationship between the nature and humankind.
