Josh Brown leads the Aboriginal Education and Community team across the Botanic Gardens and Centennial Parklands. Originally from Worimi country of the Forster-Tuncurry area, Josh has many years experience in education with qualifications in Secondary Teaching, Health and Physical Education.
Josh’s passion is to teach students, teachers and visitors of all backgrounds about Aboriginal culture. Josh wants to continue to be a role model for younger Aboriginal kids to follow their dreams and to help them succeed through education.
"Our programs aim to educate visitors about the complexities, similarities and differences within Indigenous cultures from around Australia.
We do this in keeping with the ways Aboriginal culture has always been taught to me and my staff growing up - through hands-on experiences, sharing stories, building upon knowledge we already have and contextualising new ideas and concepts to things we already know and understand."
