About - Culture College
Culture College is a social enterprise that organises school tours to Arnhem Land to inspire and educate secondary school students about Yolŋu culture and their environment. Students will have the opportunity to learn and interact with elders and children in the Community and out in the homelands, learn from the Dhimurru and Yirralka Rangers about the environment and conservation techniques and take part in art classes at the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Art Centre.
Arnhem land is one of the most culturally intact and pristine regions left on earth and home to the Yolŋu people and their lands of which they have been the traditional owners for over 50,000 years. Culture College is partnered with Lirrwi Tourism to offer 5-day Homeland visits as part of our 7- to 14-day tour. Lirrwi Tourism have been delivering exceptional tours to schools and businesses for many years and share Culture College’s aims to create a new economy for Yolŋu people in Arnhem Land through tourism. Programs are tailor-made for each school’s requirements and the personal development needs of your students and children (and also the parents should they join).
