◎ About Yawuru Aboriginal Group :
The traditional custodians of the land where walaja honey comes from are the Yawuru people who have occupied and managed the lands and seas in and around Broome since the Bugarrigarra (the time before time).
The honey is collected from the Roebuck Plains Station – an area covering 750,000 acres surrounding the historic pearling town of Broome that is owned and managed by the Yawuru Aboriginal Group.
The hives are cared for by the Appleby family who have proud Yawuru heritage and ensure the honey is 100% organic, natural, raw, unprocessed, unheated and contains no additives.
