For a long time Aboriginal stories were not told in Tasmania. We are passionate about truth telling and representation and we were tired of not seeing stories of our people in public places.
We wanted to find new ways to tell people about Tasmanian Aboriginal stories – to bring Aboriginal stories to forefront of people’s experience in Lutruwita/Tasmania and make sure that our community could see their own experiences and perspectives in public spaces.
This inspired Blak Led Tours Tasmania – our first tour takara nipaluna was the first Aboriginal tourism experience in nipaluna/Hobart and after seeing the impact it had we decided to make sure that Aboriginal experiences become available right across the island and hope to reach and inspire as many people as possible
The stories and perspectives we share are unapologetically Aboriginal.
We are passionate about Aboriginal storytelling so we work hard to make sure that our experiences best they can possibly be. This means that our tours are unlike any other on the market.
We work with a team of creatives to craft our tours. we have worked with a playwright, director, producers, sound engineers, Aboriginal heritage experts and dedicated researches to ensure our stories are told in the most engaging way possible.
Everything about our tours are carefully crafted from the content, to the routes, presenters and accessibility options.
To match the calibre of our product we are lucky to work with partner presenters to deliver our tours.
This helps to ensure that operations run smoothly and that the highest possible standard of customer service is offered.
