PlanetBLUE MOUNTAINS CULTURAL CENTRE
The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre features the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery and World Heritage Exhibition which is devoted to education about the distinctive environment, history and culture of the Blue Mountains region. The Cultural Centre is co-located with the new Katoomba Library.
The Cultural Centre showcases innovative, diverse, distinctive and creative cultural programs for enjoyment by residents of, and visitors to, the Blue Mountains. Built on the highest point in Katoomba with panoramic views of the World Heritage area, it links the main shopping precinct on Katoomba Street through enhanced pedestrian connections. Being the first publicly owned and managed, purpose designed facility of the arts to be constructed in the Blue Mountains, it is expected that the development will significantly contribute to the improvement of the economic health and cultural vitality of the Blue Mountains and the surrounding regions.
The East coast of Australia boasts some of the most spectacular wildlife and sealife found anywhere in the world!
We proud to work with a ground agent that is a partner with Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s first collaborative movement for the Reef.
The Reef Cooperative is a collective of some of the brightest minds working collaboratively on innovative ways to protect and conserve the Reef.
From Traditional Owners, to coral and seagrass experts, tourism leaders and reef restoration teams, our goal is to drive collaborative, scaleable and cross-sector conservation projects in-water with a focus on driving new technologies, communicating the work being done, and sharing learnings with reef communities globally.
The accelerating impacts of climate change mean that reefs are changing more quickly and across larger areas than ever before, requiring a fundamental shift in the way we use limited resources to target conservation efforts.
The Daintree Ecolodge offers a breathtaking retreat and the perfect base to explore the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest. Estimated to be 180 million years old, the Daintree National Park is a rare jewel in the crown of Mother Nature, where lush tropical rainforest meets sweeping beaches and fringing coral reefs. Fresh, clean water from the purest source combined with organic, healthy foods guarantees an uplifting and sustainable getaway.
PeopleSydney: The Rocks Aboriginal Dreaming Tour (Illi Langi)
Privately owned by Aboriginal People providing Aboriginal Dreamtime cultural services in tourism - training and education to the tourism, public and private education and corporate markets.
Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat - Atherton Tablelands
Firstly the managements of Rose Gums acknowledge the traditional owners of Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat, the Mullunburra people, a clan of the Yidinji nation. Their country extended from the Mulgrave River where they lived during the winter months to the uplands of the Atherton Tablelands around Rose Gums in the summer months.
Inseparable from the natural heritage, the area is also recognised as a series of living cultural landscapes being the homelands of rainforest Aboriginal people. Their lives, customs and beliefs are intricately entwined with the plants, animals, waterways and seasons of the tropical rainforests which have provided food, shelter, medicine and a way of life to the rainforest Aboriginal people since time immemorial. The aborigines lived in harmony with the country for over 40,000 years before white invasion. It is still a living culture and accessible for all to experience if they choose. There are a total of 18 rainforest Aboriginal tribal groups with 20,000 Aboriginal people that live in the region.
The Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef acknowledge the Yirrganydji people as the traditional custodians of Hastings Reef Sea Country, where our Reef Cooperative journey begins. We also recognise the diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups that span the length of the Great Barrier Reef as the custodians of the Sea Country on which we work. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging, for their continued efforts to manage and protect the Reef for future generations.
