Hands On domestic
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.
