first_imgSEIT Outback Australia says travellers can still experience and learn the Australian indigenous culture despite recent pay disputes axing the operations of Anangu Tours.Up to 20 employees with Anangu Tours said that the company had cut their pay in half in November and had since told them that some could even become redundant due to money issues, reported.Since, the company has suspended its operations with no return date in sight but said in an online statement that the suspension was due to inconsistent tours being operated since October last .”It is the firm view of the board that all reasonable efforts have been made by the board and management to reach agreement with the guides so that tour services could resume on a regular and consistent basis,” an online statement from the company read.”However, because of other factors beyond the control of the board of management of Anangu Tours, this has not been possible.”The company said it is looking is hosting talks with local communities to discuss the future of the business and could consider selling the business to a third party.”There is no intention to resume services in their current form.”With issues disrupting tours in the Northern Territory, a culture touring company, SEIT Outback Australia stressed business is still on in the Northern Territory, with daily tours from Ayers Rock Resort at Yulara operating as per usual.A statement from the Outback company read that those interested in engaging and learning about the Aboriginal culture could still do so.“People think cultural tourism is no longer an option for people coming to central Australia but that is not the case,” SEIT Outback Australia director Kathy Graham explained. “A tour to Cave Hill and spending time with you Anangu hosts changes perceptions of Aboriginal people and offers an opportunity for the ancient and modern world meet, converse and learn from each other.”  Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img
