Wanpa-rda Matilda Outback Education Centre - 
School Camps in Outback QLD

Wanpa-rda Matilda Outback Education Centre is a dedicated outback QLD school camp facility. Wanpa-rda is idyllically located within the picturesque grounds of the Australian Workers Heritage Centre in Barcaldine. This first class excursion facility provides an ideal environment to participate in our extensive range of ‘Survivor’ and ‘Heritage’ programs and learn what it takes to survive in the harsh outback.

Our centre also provides the perfect base camp from which to explore the many sites of educational significance identified in this truly unique geographical region of Australia. Just a day trip away are attractions such as the Tree of Knowledge, Blackall Wool Scour, Gray Rock and the Sculpture Trail and a host of other exciting educational sites.
Your students will be entranced and enthralled by their outback classroom and embrace all that the Australian outback has to offer. And it all comes with a guarantee that the memories will last a lifetime.
