Our Indigenous Partnerships
APT's current and increasing touring activities in Kakadu and Western Arnhem Land are in partnership with Djabulukgu Association Inc. This Indigenous association represents the interests of Traditional Owners in Northern Kakadu and parts of Western Arnhem Land. APT's Kimberley Wilderness Adventures has been in partnership with Wunan for many years. This organisation represents the interests of East Kimberley Aboriginal people.
Through these partnerships, APT can offer unique experiences and exclusive products in special places in the Kimberley, Kakadu and Western Arnhem Land. Both the Djabulukgu Association Inc. and Wunan are committed to community development. Through joint ventures with APT, employment and training opportunities are made available, which provides socio-economic benefits for many Aboriginal communities. This creates a win/win situation for both the Australian tourism industry and local communities. Other significant benefits include partnerships to build sustainable business practices.
APT, its staff and the McGeary family are dedicated to helping local communities and the less fortunate. Significant contributions have been made to the Red Cross, the Challenge Program for Kids with Cancer,
the Royal Children's Hospital, an orphanage in Cambodia, the Country Fire Authority, Breast Cancer charities, Canteen and others. Geoff McGeary was also named Bayside 2007 Citizen of the Year for his support of the local community. We understand the value of community and our people are proud to make a difference.
APT is acutely aware of the damaging effects of climate change on the environment. APT has its own modern fleet of transport vehicles that are designed to minimise emissions in the most practical way.
