Udialla Springs on the Fitzroy River, 200 kilometres from Broome, provided the backdrop for the group of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous people. Red Cross brought them together from Barcaldine in Queensland, Daly River in the Northern Territory and Broome in Western Australia.
Toby Dancey, Red Cross worker from Barcaldine, says he was impressed with everyone that morning.
"To see them jump in and do those roo tails. I thought a lot of these kids wouldn't be into that, but just goes to show when you have a good teacher and everyone else is involved, they never stood back."
That teacher is Uncle Neville Poelina, a Nyikina man and Traditional Owner at Udialla Springs, 200 kilometres from Broome.
"I sit here all my life waiting for these sort of things to happen. I maintain our part of the river to give these young people an opportunity. To see all these tribes come together and act as one. We know us Aboriginal people have got a chance," he says.
Loretta Bin Omar, Kimberly Red Cross Regional Manager and Traditional Owner, says the camp provided the young people a place to be proud, to feel safe and to learn.
"When I first heard about it I thought that's exactly what they need, connection to country. To learn about other people's country from our Elders like Uncle Neville and learn to respect each other's cultures," she says.
"To get to know each other and be a bit more supportive of each other instead of I come from here and there. We are all Aboriginal people."
