Profitability 

Wilpena Pound Resort improved financial performance due to increased interest in cultural experiences.

Indigenous Employment

Over half of the staff are local Aboriginal people as a result of the Yura Indigenous Engagement Strategy implementation.

Our product development work has resulted in a daily Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony performed in the Adnyamathanha language, as well as cultural walking tours with Yura guides.

Ideas are in place to develop a Cultural Village, along with a signature 'Cultural Cookout' Experience.
