“Where do you want to go on Country?” Competition
For many of us, travelling and exploring has been limited this year. But we are slowly getting more opportunities to have new adventures. There’s never been a better time to explore what’s right here, on Country. Whether you’re able to travel right now, or daydreaming and making a list of places you want to visit when you can, or get back to your Country.
So we’re asking, where do you want to go on Country and why? Whether you’re non-Indigenous or First Nations, connecting with Country and community is something that many of us have missed out on this year.
We’re working with our friends at @commongroundaustralia to give away a gift pack to help you explore Australia. Common Ground is an Aboriginal led non-profit working with First Nations communities to strengthen and share culture, history and lived experiences.
To enter the competition to win the gift pack, follow @commongroundaustralia and @welcometocountryau on instagram, and tell us where you want to go on Country and why and tag 2 friends you want to go with.
You can comment on either of our instagram accounts to enter, or share a story or post on your instagram account telling us where you want to go on Country and tagging us. Get creative and enter as many times as you like!
The travel pack includes
- A $500 Welcome to Country Experience Voucher
- Welcome to Country: Travel Guide to Indigenous Australia Book
-A small AIATSIS map of Indigenous Australia
- A travel cup from Minnai Luma from Waringarri Aboriginal Arts
