We don't conquer rivers, we understand them.
Outdoor education is Indigicate's passion. We want young people to love the outdoors and understand our deep connection to land. Our outdoor programs are different to other companies. *Everything we do is approached through an Indigenous lens, generating understanding through connection-based learning and enabling deeper experiences in the outdoors. *
We help change the traditional approach through our way of being and sharing!
An Indigenous lens assist people to connect with Country, with community and with one another more richly and with a more inclusive learning approach.
We design our programs to allow time for conversations and lessons around camp. We are not activity focused, it’s the quality and richness of the experience that adds the value to the learning!
Your students benefit from our experience and guidance. When they finish our programs they have a deeper understanding of Indigenous Australians and better pathways towards reconciliation.
*We are all able to create new futures together when we better understand the world around us!
• Learn about Country and the biodiversity that exists
• Learn about the living history of the area
• Develop relationships within community, with the locals.
• Discuss, explore, reflect, and learn together.

"I had the privilege of watching Shawn Andrews, a young, proud Aboriginal man host a yarning circle with 30 non – indigenous people. The power and knowledge he bought really touched the heart and opened the minds of all that were present. If education is the key then Indigicate have the key to unlock every door to educating mainstream Australia and in an open and very empowering way."
"Since my first meeting with Shawn in 2014 I have come to know Shawn as a highly motivated, highly energised Indigenous man. His vision of promoting his people, and his determination to provide new opportunities for younger members of Indigenous communities, have been highly influential. He has also worked very effectively to bring genuine understandings of Indigenous culture to non Indigenous youth. Not only has he achieved this through the design and implementation of curriculum, but on-country experiences, and camping encounters within the natural environment. Shawn Andrews certainly has translated his passion to positively influence both Indigenous and non Indigenous youngsters".
"The Indigicate session was a real eye opener to things I've never thought about, considered, seen or heard of. It was a great discussion of our history as Australians as well as the 'other perspective' that we rarely hear from. Things were learnt, history was exposed, eyes were opened and change is coming."
