The Great Getaways

Camps are extremely well prepared to ensure that Great Getaway participants have a safe and enjoyable time during their visit.

About the Great Getaways - Indoor Comfort, Outdoor Fun

The Great Getaways give all men and women over the age of 55 a chance to try new activities and socialise with like-minded people in beautiful locations.  All overnight Getaways are held at Australian Camps Association member camps that are accredited with the Quality Tourism Framework.


Activities change from Getaway to Getaway depending on what is available at each site. You may be participating in rock climbing, yoga, canoeing, initiative activities, bushwalking, high ropes course, indoor games and cycling to name a few. Everyone can take part, no matter what their fitness levels.


Accommodation at Getaways in in shared, dormitory style accommodation. You will need to bring your own bedding (sleeping bag/doona and pillow). Bedrooms and bathrooms are under one roof. Participants share rooms with people of the same gender unless requested to stay as a couple or with friends. Accommodation options and numbers per room vary dependent on site.


The Getaway price does not include transport. If you do not drive, we may be able to assist with arrangements for you. Some options may include public transport, transfers or car pools with other participants (extra fees may apply).
