Western Australia responds to demand for women’s only travel

Western Australia has added a series of women’s only tours in response to growing demand for female solo travel.

The tourist board has added four new tours that are dedicated to providing enriching and empowering experiences for women.

They include Swimming Women, based in Margaret River, which offers group swimming holidays to Sydney, Perth, Rottnest Island and Indonesia.

The company prides itself on “providing women with a safe environment with no judgement, creating friendships and improving swimming skills.”

The Bardi & Jawi cultural experience of Oolin Sunday Island is another women’s-only offering, located in Cygnet Bay in the far north of Western Australia near the town of Broome.

The tour explores of the role of women in the Bardi and Jawi culture, and includes traditional activities such as fishing, oystering, collecting of bush tucker and bush medicine on the sacred land of the Bardi & Jawias.

Also new for 2024, Nyungar Tours has launched a three-hour basket weaving workshop exclusively for females, celebrating the strength and artistry of Noongar culture. Led by experienced instructors, visitors can partake in the intricate art of weaving traditional baskets while listening to stories passed down through generations.  

The final tour is the Reddell Beach Walk and Talk Experience on Djugun and Yawuru Country, led by Elder Pat Torres. The tour includes a Welcome to Country, Smoking Ceremony and Water Ceremony. 

Speaking at ATE in Melbourne this week, Sueanne McCumstie, Lead Manager Public Relations at Tourism Western Australia, said: “We have launched these four innovative women’s-only tours to allow women to connect deeper to nature and to themselves.”

“We are continuously evolving our tourism product to encourage inclusivity and diversity.”
