The Desert Knowl­edge Precinct in Alice Springs pro­vides facil­i­ties to host events, work­shops and con­fer­ences for groups of pro­fes­sion­als. We can intro­duce and sup­port busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties, engage in strate­gic facil­i­ta­tion, and con­nect peo­ple, knowl­edge and ideas in remote and region­al Australia.

The Cor­po­rate Knowl­edge Expe­ri­ence pro­gram is designed to allow for a trans­for­ma­tion­al com­pa­ny retreat where you can tack­le busi­ness chal­lenges and strate­gies with a fresh per­spec­tive, after expe­ri­enc­ing and learn­ing about Cen­tral Aus­tralian cul­tures, land­scapes and the desert environment.

Our Cor­po­rate Knowl­edge Expe­ri­ence pro­gram offers:

  • A wide range of expe­ri­ences and hands-on learn­ing activ­i­ties to pro­mote an under­stand­ing about the phys­i­cal land­scapes and socioe­co­nom­ic fac­tors in Cen­tral Australia.
  • The facil­i­ties and ser­vices you need to host a con­fer­ence, work­shop or team day.
  • Cul­tur­al immer­sion through talks, knowl­edge shar­ing, bush­walks, and spend­ing time on country.
  • Con­sol­i­da­tion of Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Action Plans (RAP).

Pro­gram itin­er­aries are designed to last for either 2.5 or 3.5 days. DKA can also cre­ate a bespoke pro­gram com­posed around your learn­ing pref­er­ences, inter­ests and time­frames – just tell us what you’d you like!

Pack­age 1 (3.5 days)

This pack­age allows you to under­take a deep dive into your expe­ri­ence in the desert, and to apply these new learn­ings in con­text before you go home. You will under­take a jour­ney that’s been spe­cial­ly designed for you, from the ini­tial chal­lenge set­ting, to an overnight cul­tur­al immer­sion expe­ri­ence on coun­try, time to meet with com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers, and then a facil­i­tat­ed work­shop – and some free time to explore some of the many things Alice Springs has to offer.

Pack­age 2 (2.5 days)

This pack­age takes you out on coun­try to immerse you in an overnight cul­tur­al expe­ri­ence that works to open your hearts and minds to new oppor­tu­ni­ties. This is then fol­lowed by time to reflect through activ­i­ties on the Desert Knowl­edge Precinct and in Alice Springs, includ­ing a din­ner experience.
