Darwin. That sunny, Top-End city, characterised by red dirt, crocodiles and wild national parks. Being a relatively ambitious country girl, I had always dreamed about living in a city with the perfect combination of the city and nature.

Interning in Darwin during July, escaping the -5 weather of Canberra and entering a balmy 30-degree day average was a definite bonus I hadn’t considered when applying for an Aurora internship with NAAJA, the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency.

Even now I can’t believe how quickly my Aurora Project internship with the Law and Justice Section of the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) passed. Time flies when you are having fun – and also when you’re busy – two things I happened to be during my internship.

Don’t let the fact that it’s in Australia fool you; I got culture shock when I stepped out of Darwin Airport into a dry 33 degrees, after leaving Canberra in subzero temperatures.
