YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER
Tourism award winning Koomal Dreaming is owned and operated by Wandandi man Josh Whiteland. The Wadandi people ‘forest people by the sea’ live within the ‘Cape to Cape’ region in the South West of WA.
“Koomal” meaning brushtail possum, is the traditional name and totem for Josh chosen for him by his Wadandi elders. Born in Busselton, WA.
Josh grew up surrounded by family, culture and a deep understanding of connection to country. Josh provides leadership programs for Aboriginal youth at risk and disengaged students and believes that prevention is better than a cure and through education you can make a difference.
Josh also enjoys sharing this knowledge and passion for food with visitors and chefs from around the world which has led to opportunities to work with leaders in this field in film, on location and at events.
Passionate, learned and spiritually aware, Josh has a personal commitment to sharing his knowledge of his culture and lore with visitors. It is for this reason he created ‘Koomal Dreaming’ in 2007 so that he could communicate his connection with his land and his people with guests from Australia and around the world.
