Kayak, hike, rappel, bike, and farm in this outdoor adventure hub, while staying aligned with conservation and social justice efforts to support indigenous history, culture, tradition, and people in New Zealand & Australia.
New Zealand and Australia: two island nations, each with a distinct character, culture, and environment. Go deeper than the typical tourist – Informed by indigenous societies, European colonization, and a remote location deep in the heart of the South Pacific, our exploration will provide unique insight into the complexities of diverse communities, stewardship of resources, and the importance of having a balanced and harmonious relationship with our environment.
