Indigenous wisdom

Connect to culture

Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, Aboriginal healing and ‘bush medicine’. Nature and indigenous wisdom and their philosophies help us remember and respect those who have come before us. Each country's Indigenous populations have bountiful knowledge around natural therapies and healing. Australia’s 250 indigenous nations are the proud keepers of the oldest continuous culture on the planet and possess a rich well of historical knowledge about nature and wellbeing.

Ayurvedic practice, which originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, is often called the “Mother of All Healing” and in Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.” Whichever culture or indigenous wisdom you discover or embrace on your wellness travels, it is a special moment not to be missed.
