From this ancient land we will learn about the local wisdom traditions of Indigenous culture, hike through a 100million year old temperate rainforest and meet some of Australia’s leading wisdom keepers.

Over 10 days, under the close guidance Small Giants Academy, travel through Central Australia to Melbourne, exploring the cultural-heart of the island on edge of the world, followed by a journey south to the pristine wilderness of lutruwita/Tasmania, experiencing the rich biodiversity and sacred cultural significance of takayna/ Tarkine and Preminghana, while engaging in deep conversation with those at the forefront of caring, protecting and living with these remarkable wild places.

“I would take away the memory of being under the flight path of a powerful wedgetail eagle, of sleeping below the canopy home of the recently discovered Masked Owl that has been found nesting in these majestic ancient trees still, bafflingly, under threat. I would remember navigating the mossy carpet that clings to the fallen myrtles, the shock of the emerald green of the wings of the Macleay’s Swallowtail butterfly and of taking a break in the rain under the protection a towering centuries old tree fern. ” — Jo Yeldham, 2023 Impact Safari Participant
