About Us

Evidence of early Aboriginal occupation in the Karijini National Park dates back 40,000 years. During this period, Aboriginal land management practices such as fire stick farming resulted in a diversity of vegetation types and stages of succession that helped determine the nature of the animals and plants found in the park today.

The Traditional Lands of the Nyiyaparli, Bunjima and Yinhawangka peoples covered hundreds of kilometres, including areas now designated as major towns, national parks, pastoral and mining leases.
