Australian Capital Territory
Outward Bound Australia - Journeys
N/A Capital Country

From our bases in Tharwa, ACT, near Buchan on the Snowy River in Victoria, and Walpole in WA, your late primary and secondary school students will journey through stunning natural beauty to find a place within themselves that brings strength, self belief and understanding to strive towards a positive future. Journeys can be hiking, rafting, canoeing or mountain biking and can involve abseiling, climbing, caving and camping. With Outward Bound, it's never just about the activity, it's always about the learning outcomes. We work with you to deliver a program that meets your learning goals. Sequential, progressive programming for multiple year groups. Outward Bound is the heart and heritage of outdoor education.
