Our Guides

Our guides are trained (or are currently training) in Forest Therapy with the International Nature and Forest therapy Alliance, or in Wayapa Wuurrk – an indigenous form of reconnecting to land.

Our counsellors have also trained to a minimum of bachelor level in counselling from a recognised university.

All guides are trained in first aid, food handling, plus have current working with children checks, police checks and insurance policies.
