Yandani Gutharraguda ‘Welcome to Shark Bay’
Wula Gura Nyinda translates to ‘you come this way’, a traditional Aboriginal term for the sharing of stories, both between generations and between cultures. This notion of intercultural sharing extends into every aspect of the tours, which operate under the philosophy of education, understanding and respect.
Discover the secrets of a beautiful land and understand the deep spiritual connection between the Nhanda and Malgana people and this amazing saltwater country.
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 Gura Nyinda Eco Adventures provides the ultimate enriching experience of Aboriginal culture, history and tradition to visitors of Monkey Mia in Shark Bay, Western Australia and is regarded as the 'must do' experience in Gutharraguda (Shark Bay).
Owned and operated by Darren “Capes” Capewell, a descendant of the Nhanda and Malgana people, the tours aim to foster an understanding of the natural land, wildlife, stories and traditions of the region.
Capes leads a range of eco-friendly and non-strenuous tours, each showcasing the very best of Shark Bay’s breathtaking natural environment. From a relaxing tour of Little lagoon on Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUP’s), to 4WD bush tucker tours or exclusive overnight escapes on secluded, pristine beaches. Tours can also be tailored to include a range of experiences for individuals, groups or corporate training programs.
