Outdoor Skills

Getting outdoors and learning new skills are important components within the Australian Education System. As part of The Wilderness Group, we take thousands of students into the outdoors every year and teach them skills for life. Just like our Australian students, you can include these activities into any tour you wish to undertake with Earth Adventure.

Whether you want to improve your navigation skills, work on your teamwork with problem solving, or even experience spending the night sleeping in a tent, we can cater our activities to you. We also provide these activities in a wide variety of environments so whatever you are after we have you covered. Whether it be Outback Australia or urban cities, we can cater for you.
