Outward Bound Australia has been providing outdoor programs for over 60 years in Australia to a diverse range of organisations including schools, community groups, government and the private sector. Outward Bound Australia is a not for profit organisation and are the pioneers of outdoor experiential education in Australia.

OBA is offering a unique opportunity specifically tailored for Women who have experienced trauma and loss to participate in a 7-day wilderness program called “Women of Courage”. The Women of Courage program is intended for women who have progressed through their own personal healing and are ready to challenge themselves in a new setting. With a highly trained and experienced team of compassionate female instructors the course will focus predominantly on increasing self-esteem and self-reliance, building supportive relationships with other women and encouraging a sense of “trying something new”. This could be anything from hiking for the first time, sleeping in the outdoors or trying abseiling. Participants are facilitated through a challenging and inspirational outdoor journey, including activities like rock climbing and rafting, wilderness hiking expeditions and personal development sessions. These activities encompass our philosophy of “challenge by choice”.

Ready to reach your potential? Know someone who could benefit from the Women of Courage experience? Enquire online and a friendly staff member will be in touch with more information on the course, or for more detail about specific programs contact:

No prior outdoor experience is necessary and all levels of abilities and fitness are catered for.

An application will need to be completed by each participant including a medical screening form and will then be screened by OBA staff. After we receive this you will be contacted for a telephone interview. The purpose of the interview is to confirm this is the appropriate course and the right time to participate. There will be plenty of time to ask questions to ensure you are making a well-informed decision to attend the program.

Celebration and Connection: Women of Courage will help you celebrate your inner strength and character. You will be supported to connect with others in a positive environment and celebrate your own and other’s unique abilities

Self Esteem and the Ability to Envision Ones Best Self: By giving yourself the chance to shine and be yourself away from distractions you will gain new found self esteem.

Recovery from Setbacks: By providing a unique environment, Women of Courage allows you the opportunity to reflect and gain insight on what is truly important to you. The immersive experience and stunning scenery are the perfect back drop for quiet and deep reflection. From this, you can evaluate your priorities and set your direction.

Impact on Others:  By surrounding yourself with other women who have faced challenging circumstances you will be able to see the positive impact that your story has on other people and be inspired to continue to be a positive role model in your community.

Scenic Rim to River keeps you challenged and active for 14 days, in the sunny and spectacular environment of the Byron hinterland. An experience-extravaganza that teaches you how to paddle and gives you confidence you’re heading in the right direction. In every sense.

Create a lifetime of memories as you discover Outward Bound’s newest, most spectacular destination.

Kick off with a dawn ascent of Mt Warning to warm you up for some paddling on sublime flat water. Pull on your hiking boots, fasten your bike helmet and rope up as you walk, pedal and abseil across country for a week.

After taking some inspirational ‘me time’ to reflect, gear up for the ultimate high: four days of paddling the Upper Clarence River, learning to tackle grade II rapids as you go.

Supported and motivated all the way by our expert instructors, challenge is ‘by choice’ – you’ll never be forced to do anything. Just know that everyone leaves an Outward Bound experience capable of so much more than they allowed themselves to imagine!

Scenic Rim to River may qualify for the bronze, silver or gold Adventurous Journey component of the Duke of Edinburgh International Award. We welcome enquiries from Award seekers.
