About Outward Bound

Outward Bound Australia is an independent, not-for-profit outdoor education organisation that exists to empower people to discover, develop and achieve their full potential as individuals and future leaders.

Outward Bound empowers school students, communities and young professionals to reach beyond their limits through exhilarating outdoor education programs that  take participants  to a place apart and challenge them to reach their full potential. They return with a new outlook on life and the world.

We work in the natural world allowing people to expand their awareness and appreciation for the environment. Outward Bound courses are both internal and external journeys of discovery that enable people to develop inner strength, teamwork and leadership skills to sustain themselves and their communities throughout their lives. In bringing out the best in people, we aim to develop the most positive elements of the human character consistent with our core values of integrity, responsibility, resilience, compassion, service and human potential.

Outward Bound is firmly established at the forefront of personal development and experiential outdoor education. Since 1956, more than 250,000 people have participated in one of our programs! Being part of the international Outward Bound community means we have close ties with the many Outward Bound schools operating around the world.
