Immersions for Educators

Escape the classroom and grow as an educator

Connect with First Nations Australia through the people, their stories, and their land through our professional development trips... stay on Country and get to know Elders and their families.

  • Traditional Owners will welcome you to their land on their terms, to gain a deep understanding of the beauty and challenges of maintaining their way of life
  • Not only will you learn about the history and culture of the area you visit, you will also develop valuable tools for integrating First Nations perspectives into the classroom to make change in your own school community.
  • We take care of everything from A-Z. Our immersions are all-inclusive, covering flights, ground transport, food, camping equipment, permits, and whatever else you might need to make your experience perfect.
