The Aurora Project

Skip to content

I feel incredibly grateful to have had this experience and the internship has sparked a genuine interest in native title law and Aboriginal customs and traditions. Native title law is a very interesting area in which issues of public policy, environmental issues, social justice and human rights intersect.

About Aurora

The Aurora Project was established in 2006 as a result of a report into the professional development needs of lawyers at Native Title Representative Bodies. Over the years it has grown to encompass other projects in the broader area of Indigenous education and Indigenous affairs generally.

What we do

Much of our work aims to strengthen Indigenous organisations by supporting their staff and facilitating opportunities for all Australians to work in these organisations. We also run projects aimed at improving educational outcomes for Indigenous Australians.

Who we are

The Aurora Project is funded by government and corporate bodies and works closely with a number of partner organisations and trusts. Located in Sydney, our staff work closely with a range of specialists in native title, Indigenous education and Indigenous affairs more generally to deliver programs and services across Australia.
