“We are just visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”
Australian aboriginal proverb



The recent pandemic accelerated the adventure traveler’s need to connect to nature, to the land, and to immerse themselves in cultures different from their own. From learning the local language, or cooking local recipes, or even joining a dancing or music class, and understanding the amazing biodiversity around them, who better than Indigenous tourism professionals to take them on this journey? And how can we ensure experiences are making positive impacts on  local communities?
