A total of 18 university students from Indonesia arrived in Benalla recently to spend three weeks soaking up Australian culture.
They will experience home-stay accommodation, work placements and a range of cultural performance activities as part of the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP).
The students have beckoning futures in the arts and media, industry, business, agriculture, law and government, education, health and medicine, the environment, tourism and hospitality, and community and social development.
The students were able to experience the V8 Supercars at Winton, and also visited Glenrowan, the King Valley, Benalla Art Gallery and many more places.
