About Your Trip:
Travel to Cairns—a beautiful mid-sized city in the Far North of Queensland—and lend your hand to a good cause!
You’ll be volunteering at one of Australia’s leading charities, Act for Kids—a non-profit dedicated to preventing and remedying child abuse and neglect. Act for Kids has been around since 1988 (when it was founded as the Abused Child Trust), performing a wide range of important services to safeguard children across the country. While the focus of your trip is service, you’ll also enjoy some cultural sightseeing at the amazing Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, a Certificate of Excellence winner from TripAdvisor in 2014. Here you’ll learn more about the region’s indigenous peoples through informative presentations, boomerang- and spear-throwing demonstrations, and Tjapukai and Torres Strait Islander dance performances.
Take part in some worthy efforts to protect Australia’s children—and learn a little about the island country’s original inhabitants—on this journey to the Queensland coast.
