The birth of Jawoyn tourism

In September 1993, the Jawoyn Association made its first move into mass tourism, co-purchasing the boat operations at Nitmiluk Gorge.

The association made the move under a joint venture called Nitmiluk Tours with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commercial Development Corporation (CDC) and Travel North.

In July 1994, we bought out CDC’s share of the joint venture to take a total of 50 per cent equity.

More than a decade later, on January 1, 2006, we bought out Travel North’s interests to became the full owner of Nitmiluk Tours and the sole operator of the boats, canoes, caravan park and visitor centre at Nitmiluk National Park.
