Friendship and community projects

Community provides us with reasons to live and fuel to fight for a better world.

We’re interested in small and big projects around friendship and community where none of us know the answer at the start, but with the right people and the right process, we know we'll get somewhere great. 


Connection to nature projects

We are not moved to protect something unless we already have a relationship with it.

Unfortunately the way we relate to nature in the modern world views it as a place ‘over there’ that we visit on occasion or that provides us with ‘services’ like clean air.

We’re running projects that explore how we fundamentally change our relationship with nature.


Innovation services


Making a difference is hard work

We work with organisations who are committed to
grappling with the challenges of doing that well.

You don't need all the answers,
just a problem you really care about.


Strategy +

We specialise in strategy for times of uncertainty and change

We use ethnographic research to help you see clients and customers more clearly, then work with you to generate new options backed by strong business models. Finally, we can help you set priorities and articulate a clear, compelling story to get your staff and stakeholders on the same page.



Want to build your team's innovation capability? We run workshops on human-centred design and systems thinking.

Or we can mentor your team through a learning-by-doing incubation process over a few months.

Our team has run innovation training for more than 2,000 professionals across Australia.

Hinterland Innovation facilitated our board and staff planning day in May. They worked with us prior to the workshop to ensure there was clarity in what we were seeking to achieve, devised creative activities to keep us engaged and on-track and the report they provided was effective and practical, providing an excellent summary of the discussion and a clear way forward for us.

We are very grateful to Ryan and Robin for sharing their expertise and energy with us and we enthusiastically recommend them to others.
