We’ve always had great respect for the heritage and traditions of the First Australians.

Back in 1998 we were the first tour company to advise our travellers against climbing Uluru on account of its sacred significance to numerous First Nations cultures. The close working partnerships we’ve established with First Nations' communities continue to inform our understanding of the land, as well as inspire in our travellers an appreciation for the world’s oldest living cultures. Below are some of the partners that we're proud to work with. 

Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal Experience 

The Gumbaynggirr people hail from Australia's New South Wales Pacific coast - stretching from Nambucca River in the South to around the Clarence River in the North and the Great Dividing Range in the West. We visit them in in Nambucca Heads to share in a unique and immersive First Nations experience that will get you in touch with the traditional custodians of this land, lore and their ancient cultural knowledge.
