Aboriginal artist Kevin Wilson has designed the latest limited edition Qantas amenity kits inspired by Western Australia’s limitless landscapes. Spot the ancient tracks, waterways and animals from dreamy destinations, including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Marine Park (Nyinggulu), the Margaret River region, the Kimberley and Perth (Boorloo) in this gorgeous kit. Wilson is from the Western Australian Goldfields and is a founding partner of the Aboriginal creative agency Nani Creative. He captures the story of wandering, exploration and discovery within his artwork.

“My work explores the interconnectedness of all this and the reason I feel our state is so special. It’s deep in culture and history, while also vibrant and expansive. It’s so nice to be able to create some work that reflects our state for those coming to visit or stay. I hope that the vivid, interwoven artwork sparks the adventure within and encourages people to explore our beautiful landscapes. There aren’t many places that feel so big but can feel like a small community at the same time. Our cities are bustling, if you love that city life. Then you can jump in a car and within an hour be out underneath the stars away from it all. Hopefully you can get lost in my artwork in the same way you can adventure across our state.” Mr Wilson said.

The kit sports a faux leather pouch that’s great for bringing out that fits your wallet, keys and mobile phone. The kit contains a matching design eye mask, socks, ear plugs, dental kit and Lit’ya skincare products, including hand cream, lip balm and face cream. Lit’ya’s products are created based on indigenous plants. This kit is manufactured by Watermark.

These kits were launched on 26 April 2023 to celebrate Western Australia’s global tourism brand Walking on a Dream. Travellers flying Business Class from Singapore, London, and Rome to Perth will receive these kits until they run out, in addition to the very comfortable inflight pyjamas.

Western Australia offers a range of Aboriginal experiences, including Aboriginal food, trails, art lessons, storytelling experiences and guided walks.

Enjoy bush tucker explorations with Dale Tilbrook Experiences in Swan Valley. Learn about and taste native Australian herbs, spices and peppers and discover how Aboriginal people use the bush for medicinal purposes.

In the stunning Ngilgi Cave of the Margaret River region, Koomal Dreaming offers an immersive experience. Prepare to be captivated by a live didgeridoo performance while learning about native plants, food, and medicinal resources. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to witness the traditional practice of fire lighting and interact with tools and cultural artefacts that hold significance in the daily lives of the local Aboriginal community.

Embark on an Aboriginal Art Trek with Black Tracks, venturing into the expansive and remote Kimberley region located in the northern part of the state. Delve into the wealth of culture, land, and history as you journey from the picturesque Gibb River to breathtaking gorges and escarpments. Discover the allure of ancient rock art and delve into the captivating narrative of Australia’s indigenous peoples, gaining insight into their rich history along the way.

“Western Australia offers so many Aboriginal experiences for travellers to learn about the rich history of the oldest living culture which dates back more than 65,000 years.”
