The Great Getaways - Active and Fun Camps for People Over 55

We are currently in the process of organising more Great Getaways for 2020. Updates will be posted once we know more.

Need a Getaway?

  • Want to get away from the city?
  • Spend time in nature?
  • Make friends with like-minded people?
  • Try fun outdoor activities?

Many people assume that ‘camps’ means tents and sleeping on the ground.  The Great Getaways are different! We only use venues that are fully accredited Australian Camps Association members, offering comfortable dormitory style accommodation, great catering, engaging activities and trained professional staff.  Our motto is ‘Outdoor fun, indoor comfort’.

‘Loved sharing the weekend with other like minded fun loving people. So much laughter – great for the soul’ Marilyn, Camper

We offer regular Great Getaways that cater for varying fitness and experience levels. Just want to have a try or keen to extend yourself? Then the Great Getaways are for you.

Join us for a wonderful time in the outdoors, challenge yourself, try new things, relax in beautiful surroundings and meet new people.
