Our aim is to improve the relationship that people have with the outdoors and enjoy a range of recreational and educational experiences. We utilise outdoor settings as a means of escape from social stresses; to gain better understanding of ourselves; improve our relationships with others and find enjoyment associating within groups away from our structured surroundings.

South Australia is a great place to run outdoor programs as we can offer diverse activities and environments all year round.  The added variety of conducting day programs, base camps and journey expeditions helps to give balance. 

We are seeking passionate and enthusiastic instructors; people who have multiple qualifications.  We take care to give variety of programs to reduce burnout.   Work all year round is a refreshing reward when people come to South Australia.

Training and upskilling is advantageous and something we encourage and provide.  We have an extensive training calendar as we believe multi skilling continues to be a win/win.
