Hands On do­mes­tic

Travel Daily - - News -

HANDS On Jour­neys has launched its first Aus­tralian tours, with the “em­pow­er­ment tourism” com­pany say­ing the new Cairns and Port Dou­glas itin­er­ary has been built along­side the Indige­nous com­mu­nity there.

Es­tab­lished in 2015 by Simla Soo­boodoo, Hands On Jour­neys cur­rently op­er­ates tours to Cam­bo­dia, Viet­nam and In­dia, with Aus­tralia seen as a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion for the com­pany.

“As I founded Hands On Jour­neys in Aus­tralia, it was es­pe­cially im­por­tant for me to find a way to both cel­e­brate and work with the Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties that give us such a cul­tur­ally rich her­itage,” she said.

The five-day tour fo­cuses on em­pow­er­ing lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties while learn­ing about lo­cal his­tory and cul­ture, with the first de­par­ture on 18 Nov a sell­out.
