Outward Bound Australia

Public Enrolment Programs

Adventures for youth, families, and adults!

Public Enrolment programs with Outward Bound Australia offer opportunities for people from Year 5 to adults. If you are looking for family connection, youth development, or a peak adult adventure, then Outward Bound Australia has a program waiting for you.
Most of our public programs are offered during school holidays and long weekends to make dates as available as possible. For people who meet set criteria, we may be able to offer a scholarship to help with the program fees.
You don’t need to be training for a marathon to complete our programs. For our youth and short adult programs, you should be able to maintain a comfortable pace that allows you to walk and talk while carrying a heavy backpack.

Choose your next adventure!


An Outward Bound Australia youth adventure program is more than a school holiday camp. The natural environment and peak activities will guide participants in developing their resilience, confidence and self-belief, self-awareness and self-management, and compassion and empathy.
