The Tjungu way.

The Tjungu Project is a social enterprise, built on the shared value model.

We exist to partner with First Nations peoples, to keep culture strong from one generation to the next. We do this by providing a sustainable supply of well prepared guests for participation in cultural programs.

Through our partnerships with Traditional Owners, our experiences include a once in a lifetime, off-the-grid cultural and leadership experience in a remote Australian location for business leaders, executives and school students.

On this flagship journey, leaders can walk side-by-side with Traditional Owners to better understand and appreciate Aboriginal culture. Our duty of care is to carefully select and prepare people to participate in a Tjungu experience.

For example, our guests understand before they travel that cultural activities like singing or dancing are not for guests' entertainment. They are forms of storytelling, a way of passing on knowledge to younger generations.

If we do our job well, a guest's experience can be life-changing. You can find connection and learn from the oldest living culture in the world. Silence, stillness and extraordinary country create the backdrop to think differently during a Tjungu experience. On all of our journeys, you can discover previously unknown internal resources.

This is a cultural immersion multiplied by professional growth, overlaid with a social conscience.

The Experience.

Your program has been refined by years of cultural, development and growth experience and knowledge. Each program is tailored for the needs of the group participating.

The Details.

Our personal approach ensures each and every program we run is an incredible learning experience for you and your organisation.

Before.

The program starts well before you jump on Country. Before you depart we help participants prepare for their own experience, uncovering their own personal outcomes and building knowledge to ensure a culturally sensitive experience.

Locations.

We have partnerships with homelands and communities in some of the most remote places in Australia. Every region and Homeland has its own unique flavour and stories to tell, and every immersion is different.

Experience.

You will be On Country for four to five days. This is where the magic happens, and connections and growth occur. The group will be welcomed by the community to share stories and culture... all totally tech-free (Sounds crazy right?! But we promise you probably won't want to turn your phone back on.)

Leaders.

Our carefully selected Leaders are responsible for the overall safety and facilitation of the program from start to finish. Our Leaders are real world educators. They work with each participant and the group to achieve the desired learning outcomes.

  • Facebook - White Circle
  • LinkedIn - White Circle
  • Twitter - White Circle

After.

When arriving back home, it's part of our responsibility to help you make sense of what you experienced and help your learning live on in your daily lives. Through reflection, storytelling activities and optional ongoing coaching, we'll give you the best chance.

Logistics.

We arrange all trip logistics including flights, comprehensive insurance, risk assessments, medical kits and more. Your point of contact for travel logistics will be your dedicated Group Manager.

Learning.

The Tjungu learning program is carefully constructed to link each phase of the experience. Each participant will be required to conduct a number of self-reflections and activities that assist the learning outcomes. Optional organisational strategic 'off-site' sessions can also be included in the On Country experience.

Safety.

We want everyone involved in the Tjungu Project to have a life-changing experience without having to worry about their safety. The best way to take care of this is to anticipate problems rather than react to them. We work hard behind the scenes to make sure groups stay safe, so you can enjoy your experience with peace of mind.
