Holiday Camps and Field Trips

We are a passionate team of conservationists, teachers and guides, committed to building a sustainable future where all humans, creatures and the environment are respected, valued and nurtured.

We work towards this in two ways:
- Inspire, educate and empower young people.
- Operate a sustainability-driven eco-education business.

This is a great opportunity for your teen to experience a range of exciting activities in a safe environment, such as:
- Educational Bushwalks: Learning from nature about geology, geography, biology, ecology, and the importance of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
- Bush Skills and Bushcraft: Covering safety, survival, tracking, medicinal and traditional uses of plants, etc.
- Wildlife Monitoring: The use of radio tracking and trail cameras in monitoring wildlife. Game Drives – both during the day and at night to observe and learn about animal behaviour.
- Game Drives: Both during the day and at night to observe and learn about animal behaviour.
- Conservation Service: Getting practical with some physical hands-on projects that will assist the conservation or wildlife management of the reserve.
- Hike and Sleep Out: Experience nature close-up and personal with a sleepout at our dedicated safe sleep-out location. Students take turns in keeping watch throughout the night.
- Fun group activities: Designed to develop life skills.
