Red Earth Immersion Program 2017

Immersion Volunteer Application Closed for 2017

What Does Red Earth Do?


Red Earth is a social enterprise that fosters partnerships between schools and remote Indigenous Australia in an effort to open students’ eyes to the beauty and diversity of Indigenous Australia. Through this, we hope that students will gain a greater insight into the world of Indigenous Australia and create life long connections to the land and people.


Red Earth takes school groups of around 20 high school students and teachers and travels to remote Indigenous Australia for an immersion lasting up to 11 days. During this time, they contribute to an Aboriginal community or homeland and immerse themselves in the culture of the land with activities led by elders and traditional owners.

We hope that these experiences will remain at the forefront of students’ minds as they transition into adulthood and start to shape Australia’s future. Immersions take place in Cape York, Central Australia and Arnhem Land.

Applications are now closed for 2017
