Regional Assistants (Bus Drivers) in 2024

We are looking for professional, enthusiastic Regional Assistants (Bus Drivers) to work in Cape York, Central Australia and The Top End in 2024.

What is Red Earth?

Red Earth is a social enterprise dedicated to connecting young people with remote Indigenous Australia through cultural immersion programs in Cape York, Central Australia, Lake Mungo, The Kimberley, Arnhem Land and the Top End.

Groups spend 5-10 days camping on Country, participating in cultural activities, contributing to a project on a homeland, visiting sacred sites and directly connecting with the Traditional Owners of the land, learning about culture and their personal stories.

Our deeply impactful experiences are achieved by establishing strong, enduring partnerships with Traditional Owners and similarly robust relationships with schools, colleges, and institutions.

Red Earth also delivers immersion experiences for adult and corporate groups.

Red Earth’s expertise lies in bringing these two parties together, to facilitate an authentic shared experience that furthers our collective and constant drive towards reconciliation.
