What Is It?

An expedition to Australia by the Good Will Society, a non-profit organisation which promotes cross-cultural experiences, this one is all about exploring the land down under. The India contingent will meet up with groups from Poland and Germany too, for added diversity.

Who Is It For?

If you’re one of those who thinks that there is much to be learned from travel, especially out of one’s comfort zone, you must sign up for this holiday. Targeted at those between the ages of 18 to 24, the entire concept of these expeditions is to interact with locals, understand the culture of a different place, and empower young people through adventure.

Why Should I Go For It?

Oh! You mean apart from the fact that you can go swimming in the magical Great Barrier Reef? Well you’ll be meeting with Aborigines and experiencing their unique culture, you can go surfing, snorkling and even scuba diving in waters that most divers would be thrilled to be in and of course a trip to Blue Mountain, is another draw, we think. Apart from these adventure activities, you’ll even get the opportunity to visit the Australian World War Museum and meet The Voice singer Jacob Lee. But, more importantly, a potential meet and greet with the Prime Minister too.

Parental Guidance

And for you parents who are thinking of sending your young wild and free one on this, then there’s a bit more of the typical conference aspect too. Expect workshops, debates, discussion, friendly sports competitions and cultural performances to pack in that cultural punch.  Oh how we wish we were not on the wrong side of 24!

When: Registrations close on July 22. The expedition is from October 22 to November 2, 2016

Price: INR 1.87 Lakh inclusive of flights {international and internal}, accommodation, food, transport and activities.
