Warlu Way

The Warlu Way is a tourism small business support and development for North West WA activation program.
This project has been supported by the ASBAS Northern Australia Tourism Initiative, an Australian Government initiative.

The Warlu Way is a tourism small business support and development for North West WA activation program.  Delivered by the Business Centre Pilbara it seeks to engage local people across the Pilbara and work with them as a business in tender or new small business to get them to the point of trading successfully as a new tourism enterprise.

We support individuals by working in partnership with organisations such as Tourism WA, WA Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC) and other organisations who are involved in supporting the development of tourism in our region.  Part of the program includes running specific tailored workshops to assist in professionally developing individuals and organisations so that they can reach an industry standard in being an accredited tourism business as accredited through the Tourism Council WA.

Enrollment in the Warlu Way program involves a one-time fee of $50 payable at commencement to access support for the duration of your business development needs.
