My internship proved to be an extraordinary vantage point from which I could explore and learn about challenges facing Wet Tropics area in today’s world, such as environmental protection versus economic development, management of the protected area and working together with Traditional owners to achieve tangible benefits for local communities.

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 the broader Indigenous sector to deliver programs and services across Australia.
