Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness (NNCA) began in 2011 and is an Aboriginal-owned and -operated business running tourism experiences in Narooma on the NSW South Coast on Yuin country. The lead guide is Dwayne ‘Naja’ Bannon-Harrison who has over 17 years of experience along with nine generations of cultural teachings passed down. Dwayne and the family team at NNCA invite visitors onto Yuin country to learn and immerse themselves in the world’s oldest living culture.
Gulaga Mountain and Djirringanj Country are the heartbeat of the Yuin people and as traditional knowledge holders and teachers, NNCA guides the visitor on these two-night Indigenous experiences to connect people to the creation stories and to take away a memory of the sacred dreaming of the Yuin.

NSW First spoke to Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness Owner & Director Dwayne Bannon-Harrison about why the business is involved with the program.
How did the Destination NSW New Product Workshop help your business?
The New Product Workshop helped shape the products we offer by looking at our business approach purely from a tourism industry perspective. This is still a work in progress however without this program we would not be where we are — an export-ready tourism business.
Which international markets do you target?
We have our stronghold in the Western Markets — USA, Canada, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and Scandinavia.
