Water divining
Experience the devine, slow immersion in a pristine freshwater lake dished in pure white sand
It's how you see it
The soft sway of grass seeds delivers beauty to a barren ridge
Shower in the sunset
Here on the vast outback horizon, a shower rolls in to farewell the sunset
Where few people tread
To roam across this moonscape is to journey through 60,000 years

CONNECT WITH NATURE

Experiences in exploring our homeland have confirmed just how unique Australia is - the landscapes, natural history and indigenous culture. 

But there is more to the journey than simply observing.

Discover how nature enriches your wellness, sense of place and belonging when you immerse yourself in the wild. 

Despite its complexities nature seems to function, suggesting mankind still has much to learn from nature’s way. 

This reflects the spontaneous response of our guests and how our journeys have evolved over the years.

We are dedicated to the cause of nature deficit in mankind's personal and collective decision making, in raising a family and nurturing the young. Of sustaining natural capital for business success and caring for humanity. 

Our journeys are a comfortable and valued way of enabling all guests to quietly and inwardly discover the wonder and meaning of it all.

Join us in the experience.
