About Us

Karrke is owned and operated by Christine Breaden and Peter Abbott who live in a small Aboriginal Community called Wanmarra, population (10) located in inside the Kings Canyon National Park (WATARRKA).

We came up with this business to preserve our Luritja and Pertame (Southern Arrernte) language and cultural knowledge and heritage.

We also would like to enrich visitors and our younger generations in passing on our Aboriginal knowledge .

Karrke is the name for western Bowerbird in the Arrente language which we have used to name our company Karrke Aboriginal Cultural Experience. We operate 10 months of the year from mid-January to mid November.
