When I received confirmation of my Aurora placement with the Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority (AAPA) in Darwin for six weeks over the winter break I was overjoyed. The prospect of working for such a unique organisation was extremely exciting.

An Aurora internship is an excellent, pragmatic means to exploring and deepening one’s theoretical knowledge, through applied experience.  It is more than that however.
