Sleep in a swag under the impressive Southern night sky, spearfish and cook what you catch with Aboriginals, make your own Aboriginal artwork, learn about life in remote communities with a local host, explore pristine coastal rainforests.
“Dreamtime,” the animist mythology central to indigenous Australian society, is a fascinating ideology that has helped shape the continent. This trip is just the ticket for curious travellers eager to learn more about Aboriginal history, culture and contemporary life straight from the people themselves. Up here in the North, you’ll study ancient traditions, learn how to spearfish, wander the beaches and lush valleys along the Daintree River and embark on a life-affirming rainforest walk that will bring you closer to the land and the people who inhabit it than you ever thought possible. The dream is real, and it’s waiting for you to join it.
