ACT Natural Resource Management (ACT NRM) is committed to supporting local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people developing their own enterprises, including ecotourism and cultural tourism.
Ecotourism and cultural tourism are starting to evolve as the ACT is gaining a larger tourism profile.
Aboriginal Natural Resource Management (Aboriginal NRM) programs support eco- and cultural tourism businesses by helping them with advice and identification of relevant training, partnerships, mentors, resources and opportunities.
Examples of this work include:
- Ongoing support to Aboriginal owned businesses Thunderstone Aboriginal Cultural Services, Culture on the Move and Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation
- Ongoing support to the Mulanggang Traditional Aboriginal Landcare Group
- Supporting local service providers
- Cultural tours with local Traditional Custodians through Dharwa Aboriginal Cultural Tours and Ngunnawal Aboriginal Cultural Tours
