Spirit of Place
**PRIVATE AIR CHARTER**
Join ABC broadcaster Geraldine Doogue and the Art Gallery Society of New South Wales’ Liz Gibson, together with local Indigenous leaders, to discover the history, art and culture of the Torres Strait and Arnhem Land.
On this private air tour, providing rare access to some remote and generally inaccessible areas, you can experience Australia’s Top End, with its pristine beauty and diverse cultural traditions, and unravel the fascinating layers of complex, vibrant and enduring cultures that have shaped this unique part of the world.
Discover picturesque Horn, Thursday and Badu islands in the Torres Strait before flying to the Gove Peninsula to visit the famed Yolngu community of Yirrkala in north-east Arnhem Land.
Visit significant historic sites that hold memory and meaning for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and meet local artists who share their traditional and contemporary art practices.
In the spirit of reconciliation, the Art Gallery Society of New South Wales and Renaissance Tours acknowledge the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today
