The Olkola people come from Queensland’s southern central Cape York Peninsula and call themselves the ‘Freshwater People’. Their traditional lands encompass over one million hectares, which are part of the largest unbroken tropical savanna in the world. In 2014 some of their traditional lands were returned to them, and now they’re hoping to share their country with travellers.
Along with our sister company, Intrepid Travel, we’ve worked with the Olkola to produce an exclusive, one-of-a-kind adventure on the Cape York Peninsula. Travellers can stay with the Olkola and learn the stories of the land from the elders themselves. We’re pretty proud to be involved in this project, and the first wave of departures are due to begin soon!
