Accommodation and Meals

The traveling element of this program is a camping trip at a combination of farm stays, caravan parks and national parks. This is a participatory tour where students will share duties such as meal preparation, clean up and the setting up of the camp. Two people share a 3-person tent at each location and students bring their own sleeping bags and travel pillows. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included when traveling.


Electronic Tourist Visas (ETAs) are required for entry into Australia.

A Connecticut native, I have returned to the area after spending several years living, working and studying abroad. I hold a BA in International Studies with a French minor from Fairfield University and a Cambridge CELTA from AKCENT International House Prague. After a time teaching English in France, I went on to complete a Master of Arts in International Social Development at the University of East Anglia. I am passionate about international education and the importance of the internationalization of higher education for an increasingly global society. In my free time I enjoy cooking, music and of course traveling as much as possible!
