Karijini Experience aims to attract a family crowd
The Karijini Experience is pushing a family-friendly image this year, with many free events hosted throughout the week to engage with children and parents.
Family activities this year include the Tjaabi Project song and story workshop, a Spinifex Express performance, movie and puppet shows, a fun run and yoga.
Several indigenous experiences such as tool and weapon making and throwing, bush tucker sources and art workshops will also be available.
Organiser Sarah Kemp said the experience would be a good chance for families to come out and share in what makes the Pilbara great.
“Moving our family to the Pilbara is one of the best decisions we ever made,” she said.
“This year, the Karijini Experience has been scheduled within the school holidays in the hope that families from across the region and further abroad will pack up the tent or
caravan and bring the kids out camping in the national park.”
The Karijini Experience runs from April 15-22, and includes Deborah Cheetham’s Opera in the Gorge, the Moonrise Lounge and a degustation dinner by Fervor.
