We arrive in Sydney Australia and our contacts are there to meet us. We follow the students as they explore Sydney, go for a harbour tour and visit indigenous cultural institutions. The aboriginal area of Sydney is called Redfern. It contains the same social problems, decaying housing and gang violence as Saskatoon or Regina. Our students will recognize the similarities and comment about it. Next we travel to Alice Springs where we are once again greeted by the local people. In the evening our students... [see more] are entertained by traditional dances and storytelling from the local people. The next day they take a trip to Uluru also known as Ayers Rock. It is a day trip away from Alice Springs. The rock is sacred to the indigenous people and while there is a trail leading to the top our students will respect the tradition and not climb the rock. After a good visit our students head to the airport for the long flight home.
