Wuddi Cultural Centre & Aboriginal Tours

Three hours south east of Perth is the wheatbelt town of Dumbleyung. The name Dumbleyung is derived from the Aboriginal word ‘dambling’ meaning large lake or inland sea. The Wuddi Cultural Centre celebrates the area’s ancient Aboriginal history, keeping it alive by sharing local cultural traditions, bushfoods, stories, artworks and artefacts. Visitors can purchase authentic Aboriginal  items from all over WA, with many locally crafted right here in Dumbleyung including: tapping sticks, boomerangs, didgeridoos, artworks, bush jewellery, bush foods and jams. The Cultural Centre also operate culturally themed tours that range from bushfood tasings, to walking tours of the region’s important Aboriginal sites. Wuddi Cultural Centre is a place that offers a warm welcome and a surprising insight into the Aboriginal history of the region.

LAKE DUMBLEYUNG

Come to Lake Dumbleyung,  Western Australia’s largest lake, Dumbleyung is also a place with a rich Aboriginal history. This body of water was once a significant source of food and water for the Wilman people of the region, attracting birdlife, wildlife, fish and yabbies. Now a saltwater lake due to land clearing, the lake is no less spectacular when full, attracting black swans and a multitude of birdlife. As you will discover on this tour, the spiritual and cultural connections that the region’s first people share with this place are still very much alive.
