Nature Philosophy has a deep love and respect for indigenous culture!

We have spent over 12 years learning survival skills and the global principles of deep nature connection directly from our adopted Australian Aboriginal Yolngu family in North-East Arnhem land, NT. We believe survival skills courses are only complete when woven together with local indigenous wisdom.

During NATURE ONE we are very fortunate as local Gumbaynggirr Elder, Mark Flanders joins us to share stories about local Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal culture and yarn about traditional bush foods.


NATURE ONE is our core prerequisite program for more advanced survival programs, such as NATURE TWO, NATURE THREE, WILD AWARENESS ONLINE & THE YEAR LONG GUNUUWA IMMERSION PROGRAM. You can find out more HERE or be in touch with our team at
