Outward Bound

Provider Overview

Outward Bound Australia is an independent, not-for-profit outdoor education organisation that exists to inspire Australians of all ages and circumstances.

Outward Bound delivers adventure-based outdoor programs to facilitate self-discovery; enabling people to find ideals and communities to serve, purpose to strive for, and resilience (not to yield) in the face of life’s challenges.

Outward Bound programs are adventurous journeys with a degree of physical, mental and emotional challenge to facilitate personal growth and development. They enable positive change in students and they’re still a whole lot of fun.

Outward Bound can offer tailored  Journey programs including travel by canoe, mountain biking and hiking.
