Description

Karrke is owned and operated by Christine Breaden and Peter Abbott who live in a small Aboriginal Community called Wanmarra, population (10) which is located inside the Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon).

We came up with this business as a way to preserve our Luritja and Pertame (Southern Arrernte) languages, cultural knowledge and heritage. This enables us to pass on our Aboriginal knowledge to younger generations and enrich our visitors experience of our country.

Karrke is the name for Western Bowerbird in the Arrente language, which we have used to name our company- Karrke Aboriginal Cultural Experience.

We operate 10 months of the year from mid-January to mid November.

Guests also have the opportunity to purchase our local arts and crafts.
