WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY…

I think my biggest highlight of Catherine’s Yuendumu trip was to see Australia in a new light. I am a city girl but have travelled the world yet never travelled in this fashion before and seen the real deep Australia. It made me feel more connected with where I live and I now have a sense of the real struggle of indigenous Australians. But through the struggle the raw beauty in art and nature shone through. I didn’t realise that this trip was going to have such an impact on my mind and heart. It is definitely a bucket list trip.
