In 2007, Adventure Alternatives established a purpose-built Outdoor Education Centre at Woodford, Queensland. Adventure Alternatives has developed a socially and environmentally sustainable outdoor education centre which provides real life experiences. Starting with just a toilet and shower block, a tarp for a dining area and 3 person dome tents for accommodation, it has now flourished into a centre with a full range of built initiatives, accommodation for 138 participants in bunk style accommodation in 9 eco cabins, commercial kitchen, 30x15m dining hall, and fully stocked gear shed and office to accommodate 150 people out bush.
From humble beginnings to providing multiple-day programs for 3 separate clients in three locations for up to 295 participants while managing menus, 21 staff, logistics and equipment. Adventure Alternatives has achieved unprecedented success through its organic growth and down-to-earth beliefs.
