Please prepare to bring or notify us of any gear needed as outlined by the gear list below and on the PDFs provided.


Transportation is provided from Geraldine to Peel Forest for the Bush Day and Rafting Day.

We recommend organising carpooling amongst friends for the other three days.


If you do not plan to meet us at the given location (eg. would rather meet in Peel Forest than Geraldine) or are having difficulty finding transportation please let us know! 

We may be able to help organise carpooling and also have a limited amount of space available to travel with our instructors, but it may mean departing early/arriving late.

Look at some of our participants in action!

Holiday Programme Schedule

We aim to run this programme Monday-Friday in the order described below. However, the weather doesn’t always play ball and we may need to swap activities around or change locations to suit the conditions. 

If you’ve only signed up for a single day and we need to switch the day, we’ll let you know the new date of your activity and give you the choice to attend the activity you planned or the day you planned with a new activity and refund the difference. 

Ready to book!
