“On Country” Aboriginal Cultural Experience
– Full Day Tour
Delegates will take a bus to the fabled Blackall Range (formerly Bunya Mountains) in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland. These were home to the legendary Bunya Festival, the largest pre-colonial gathering of Aboriginal people on the mainland, a time of feasting, story-telling and community reconciliation. Partnered with Queensland Baptists’ camping ministry, the TribalLink Cultural Awareness Centre, led by Aboriginal Christians, is a place of national reconciliation pointing to a spiritual narrative.

Full Day Tour on Tuesday, July 8
In Australia, the focus of camp venues is less on summer or holiday camps (though these still take place), and more on partnership with schools – both Christian and secular. QCCC is Queensland’s largest provider of outdoor education programming across its 4 venues and expedition programs. This tour will take place in QCCC’s largest venue, the custom-built QCCC Mapleton venue, situated on a spectacular 55-acre rainforest in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
