Who we are

THE RURAL EXPERIENCE is an initiative of Rural Immersion Ltd, a registered charity that is creating new possibilities for rural areas by initiating and nurturing stronger connections between the city and the bush.

We believe we can contribute to the vitality of rural communities by encouraging young adults from metropolitan areas to work, study or train in rural areas.

Our programs are designed to develop better understanding and wider discussion of rural challenges as well as to inspire student choices and support rural communities.

Rural Immersion operates independently and is not part of any government or corporate initiative. Our directors have extensive experience in regional community development, project and risk management, business planning and finance.
