The Hermannsburg Historic Precinct is a popular tourist destination and significant historical site that was included in the National Heritage List in 2006. It currently attracts 10 000 tourists each year, many from overseas. The land and buildings are owned by the traditional owners of Hermannsburg through the Central Land Council. The precinct is administered by the Hermannsburg Historical Society.
Following an expression of interest process, FRM was selected to manage the tourist operations of the precinct on behalf of the Hermannsburg community. FRM has been managing the operation since March, 2014. Any surplus funds from these operations will belong to the
FRM is excited about this new project because it allows us to employ more local Indigenous staff, and also provides opportunities for training them in hospitality and tourism in the future. All this is additional to the employment and training we are currently offering at the Hermannsburg Store in retail sales and at the bakery.
The Precinct serves as a testament to the faith and perseverance of the early missionaries, those Indigenous people they ministered to and trained, and all their descendants and co-workers in the gospel who have followed in their footsteps over the past 135 years.
