Adventure Alternatives have designed and purpose-built an Outdoor Education Centre that matches the needs of your program outcomes. The location has been strategically chosen and positioned to take advantage of the amazing natural features and beautiful adjoining national parks. Our facility is not a resort, we do not have a pool, we do not have ensuites, we do not have bricks & concrete as far as the eye can see - students can experiences resorts on holidays with their families. These facilities are focused on true outdoor education connecting indoor and outdoor spaces through integrated design. They are designed to maximise functionality for easy flow of students through one central communal hub, create a sense of connection to nature while ensuring safety and creating community to compliment the outcomes our programs are achieving.
