“This unit changed my life. It was amazing to go live on country for a week and feel the connection to land. We spoke a lot in the unit about healing nature and that nature heals you, and that felt very real. Also the food was amazing!”
“This was literally the best experience I’ve ever had. I got to live on country, I made amazing friends, and I got to learn about Indigenous culture and heritage and genocide. We were taught by elders, encouraged to live off the land, and it was a real insight into first nations technology and agriculture.”
“The unit was not only very valuable to me personally but it also gave me a greater understanding of how my education in Australia needs to have an Indigenous focus. Learning about Indigenous heritage and culture makes me a better Australian and it allows me to understand the circumstances First Nations people face today.”
