If you could, who would you like to have a conversation with?

This scenic cruise brings together our youth, the future of Palm Island, and inspiring Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders in a casual conversation. While cruising the waters of the Palm Island Group, youth from Palm Island and Townsville will have the opportunity to talk about their possible futures with an amazing panel of speakers who have broken down barriers to succeed in their chosen field. We'll explore topics that will make the next 100 years a deadly future for our kids and theirs.
