Aboriginal Cultural Immersion Programs
The Western Arrernte (Aranda) Aboriginal people are part of the oldest living culture on the planet. The origins of the Aranda people are told through creation stories, passed down from generation to generation.
As owners of Glen Helen Lodge, they coordinate Cultural Immersion Programs, allowing students to experience Aboriginal culture, history and traditions first hand, from the Traditional Owners of the Tjoritja West MacDonnell Ranges.
Participants are immersed in the living Aboriginal culture of outback Australia, where the local Western Arrernte people still converse in their traditional language, and cook using local produce and hunted meats.
Tailor made programs of varying lengths are available.
