​The Aboriginal Tourism Development Program 2015-2018 has been developed to help grow Aboriginal tourism in Western Australia. It is funded by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program and implemented by Tourism WA and Western Australian Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC).

The program involves two elements: 
Marketing - The marketing component will generate awareness of Aboriginal tourism experiences in WA and will benefit all operators. It will also help export-ready Aboriginal tourism businesses to gain exposure and build relationships in global travel-trade distribution channels.

Business development – Seventeen businesses will receive business advice and mentoring until 2018 as part of the program. Coaches will work with each operator to undertake an initial business health check considering areas such as compliance, financial, staffing, business systems, tourism accreditation, product offering and delivery.

Selection for the program was based on a competitive Expressions of Interest process.
