Community Project Travel
Australian Walking Holidays - Community Project Travel
Our range of community project trips are designed to benefit people and environment of Australia, while at the same time you will enjoy cultural interaction and the natural beauty of the region in which you are travelling. These projects will require a good level of physical fitness. Others are reached via private transport and the only prerequisite is that you be in good health and have a positive attitude. A component of your trip payment will be donated as funding for the materials needed to carry out the project work.
The experience promises to be interactive, philanthropic, educational and uplifting in every sense. Participants can expect to complete the experience having made long term friendships, being part of a team who have contributed to a community in need and with an overriding feeling of personal achievement. So make a difference to the lives of communities less fortunate and sign up to join one of these highly rewarding community projects.
1. Our Planet Travel Larapinta Trail and Bush Tucker Garden Project
Departs: Alice Springs on 27 August 2016
Join 'Our Planet Travel' director, Melanie Grevis-James on this classic Australian Trek combined with a truly unique opportunity to work along-side an indigenous community to help re-establish their bush tucker garden. For the eco-adventurers out there ... this is the trip for you! The Larapinta Trek is one of the seven Great Walks of Australia and is now noted as one of the top 10 walks in the world on many trekking writers walking lists. We combine this trek with 3 days of community service restoring the 'Old Bush Tucker Garden' with the Yarrenyty Arltere Learning Centre located near the Larapinta Town Valley camp. There is much educational value and cultural preservation to be gained from a strong bush tucker and medicinal herb program within Aboriginal communities. YALC aims to restore the old bush tucker garden (approx land size 25m x 75m) into a sustainable working community garden.
