The gateway for Australia's first Indigenous people 60,000 years ago - where the rainforest meets the reef! Our partner Homelands in Cape York straddle the lush greenery of the Daintree Rainforest, the dry plains of the inland rock country, and the stunning coastline to which the Great Barrier Reef clings. Home to 40% of Australia's bird species and over 3000 species of plants, Cape York is a tropical paradise rich in Indigenous history and culture.
The Top End
One of the last areas touched by Europeans, Arnhem Land really is Australia's last wild frontier. Experiencing Indigenous life in Arnhem Land is like stepping back in time; a window to a world in which the people, land and culture are one. From picturesque wetlands to mountain caves hiding 10,000 year-old rock art, Arnhem Land is a place like no other with stories that will stay with you forever.
We all know the famous landmarks and red sand of Central Australia, but we take you beyond the postcards on a transformative journey into the APY Lands, the heart of Aboriginal Australia. These permit-protected lands are home to renowned Indigenous artists, curious kids, inimitable natural beauty, and 65,000 years of Indigenous history.
Explore over 40,000 years of history at Culpra Milli and Lake Mungo, home to Mungo Man and Mungo Lady - the oldest human remains ever found in in Australia. Delve into the deep spiritual connections the Barkindji, Muthi Muthi, and Nyampar people have to the Willandra Lakes region.
We have partnerships with Homelands and communities in some of the most remote places in Australia
Whether you choose the untouched beauty of Arnhem Land, the lush bountiful rainforests of Cape York, or the remote APY Lands in Central Australia, you will experience the richness and beauty of Indigenous culture and its connection to the land.
Our immersions are held on private Homelands where Aboriginal families have been living for tens of thousands of years, and are only accessible with the permission of Traditional Owners who will host you for 10 days.
Indigenous culture is at its strongest and most authentic on these remote, isolated Homelands, where the people have maintained a meaningful connection to their land for hundreds of generations. There is no better way to learn about Aboriginal culture and history!
