Our Purpose

We are a non-profit advocacy group that promotes community recovery and prosperity through ECO-CULTURAL-TOURISM. We  bring community together into a creative, strategic and sensitive workshop approach where 'lived experience' and specialist experts (including Traditional cultural custodians) share knowledge. In this context we co-design places, spaces & ‘experiences’ to showcase heritage, environment, culture and community identity while securing our rich biodiversity. Our approach drives innovation in a world that is shifting from extraction to regeneration, from competition to cross-cultural, cross-sector, cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Our Objectives

Strengthening Community

Respecting Country & Culture

Securing Habitat & Species
