Programs and activities


Our centre's programs are aligned with the Queensland Curriculum, covering key learning areas in studies of society and environment, science, home economics, art, dram, English and technology with strong links to the national history curriculum.

Our centre is dedicated to facilitating school camps with a focus on general Australian history, Indigenous Australian history, and survival techniques for the Australian outback environment. Itineraries can be selected based on theme or tailored to suit the needs of your particular school. The popular activities undertaken by schools allow students and teachers to experience a broad spectrum of what the outback has to offer, including survivalist activities which provide a fundamental base for those interested in Australian bushcraft and survival skills. Heritage-themed activities which provide access to the rich Australian heritage of the outback and include authentic ‘on-location’ experiences. Plus, what educational camp would be complete without archery, teambuilding activities and a campfire nurtured from the friction of two sticks enjoying toasted marshmallows, whilst students reflect on their outback visit to "Australia's biggest classroom".
