The East Kimberley provides a beautiful location for students to have immersive aboriginal experiences. Our East Kimberley programs are designed to provide an Aboriginal cultural immersion like no other. We work with a number of different Indigenous groups throughout the region. Many of our programs in this area incorporate a visit to the town of Kununurra. The Miriwoong and Gajirrabeng people are the original inhabitants of the lands around Kununurra. On our East Kimberley programs students are encouraged to learn about and interact with local Miriwoong and Gajirrabeng people. These interactions occur in a number of ways:
The Miriwoong culture and language is considered critically endangered. By having Rustic Pathways students learn from aboriginal experiences with the Miriwoong people, we aim to help preserve this beautiful culture.
Another incredible Aboriginal experience we offer in the East Kimberley is a visit to the community of Billiluna. Rustic Pathways offers an on country experience. Students get the opportunity to live in community and participate in daily life in Billiluna. This type of experience is not scripted, it is a genuine immersion experience. Students may find themselves involved in some of the following activities:
All of the above experiences are available for inclusion in our custom designed programs. Alternatively, contact us to learn about our pre-existing programs in The East Kimberley.
