The apocalyptic 2019-2020 Australian bush fires were a dire warning: respect the environment and listen to Indigenous wisdom, or our world will become an unlivable nightmare.
Currently accepted bush management techniques bear little resemblance to the 60,000 plus years of wisdom and understanding that Australia’s Indigenous nations have evolved, including the rich relationship of fire and healthy Country.
The award-winning film Inferno Without Borders by Sandrine Charruyer is a thought-provoking and powerful film, exploring the underlying major issues with bush management and Australia’s part in contributing to global warming.

About the Yuin Healing Trail
Commencing with our launch event on 5 May and culminating with the Yuin Healing Trail on 13-15 October, we’ll be hosting over 30 events that bring focus to the central role of Connecting to Country in the health of our communities.
Our rich lead up to October will also see the coming together of health practitioners and therapists in monthly Healing Hubs to engage in discussions on Healing Country, Yarn Circles and standalone Cultural workshops and programs.
Each of these entwines First Nations traditions with Western approaches, bringing together the best of both ways of seeing, being and doing so we can walk together towards a healed nation with a shared future.
You are warmly welcome to join the Yuin Healing Trail and all associated upcoming events to be part of this unfolding journey.

We all play a vital role in the reciprocal healing between people and planet.
