Our high school programs are all-inclusive experiences to make your trip to Timor-Leste as easy as possible. We know all schools are different and we'll work with you to design an itinerary specific to your schools learning objectives

We aim to provide a world-class standard of service in Timor-Leste, we have public liability insurance ($20m), developed a subscription medevac plan specific to Timor-Leste, implement comprehensive risk management strategies, and trained and diligent local staff.




Before your trip...

  • School specific itinerary

  • Comprehensive risk assessment for each group

  • Immersion pre-departure information package

  • Immersion pre-departure information session with teachers, parents, and students to ensure everyone is prepared for the experience

  • On-going support via phone and email leading up to the immersion

  • Online booking portal to register all participants and collect important information

  • Timor Unearthed has partnered with Reho Study Tours (Melbourne based travel agency) to manage and book your group flight to Timor-Leste.

In Timor-Leste

  • All-inclusive immersion program

  • In-country pre-departure briefing on arrival

  • An experienced team of local guides and drivers who have completed training in workplace health and safety, safe driving, child protection, first aid, and tour guide skills

  • High-quality educational workshops provided by our partnering organisations

  • Co-ordinated sustainable tourism activities. All our sustainable tourism experiences include an educational component (i.e. snorkeling and marine conservation, homestay experience and Timorese culture, trekking and eco-tourism).

  • Historical and cultural tour of significant sites

  • Reflection sessions and journal. We believe it is important that our groups take time to reflect on their experiences. Our team co-ordinates reflection sessions to encourage students to share their thoughts, ask questions, and enhance their learning experience

  • All accommodation carefully selected to be safe and comfortable

  • All transportation in well-maintained vehicles

  • All meals. Our restaurants are carefully selected based on similar values and quality. We include meals at hospitality training centers and restaurants that share the same vision to grow the hospitality and tourism in Timor-Leste.

Back home...

We want our programs to inspire students to make a positive change when returning home. After the immersion experience, many students and teachers want to continue their connection with Timor-Leste. This may be by fundraising and supporting a local program students visit during the immersion. We assist in connecting schools to our partnering organisations where students can fundraise and support local Timorese communities


  • Flights

  • Personal travel insurance

  • Entry visa fee ($30.00USD)

  • Medical expenses

The entire Timor Unearthed team were exceptional - all capable,  friendly professionals who enhanced our Timor experience with their warmth, good-humoured communication skills and insider Knowledge. It was clear that they all cared deeply about Timor and giving us the best experience possible. I loved the fact that they supported social enterprises and took us to the all the best places to dine and purchase lovely handicrafts and art. Highly recommend Timor Unearthed!
