Student Explore Australia

The natural landscape of Australia lends itself to many opportunities for outdoor education. Students Explore Australia gives students of all age groups the opportunity to spend time with nature and develop their teamwork, leadership and technical outdoor skills. Our land-based outdoor education school camps can include a variety of activities as seen below. Our programs can be customised to align with specific learning outcomes for your class or year level.


We have many more land based activities than hat is featured below, so feel free to give us a call or enquire now to find out more.

Sand Boarding and Tobogganing

Sand boarding (standing up) and tobogganing (sitting down) are always huge hits with students! If you’re students don’t mind getting sand absolutely everywhere, then indeed sandboarding is a great option. Aside from being a fun hands-on, it proves to students that we all have to work for reward – this lesson is experienced as students must climb the tall sand dunes in order to get enjoy the journey sliding down. Perfect for teachers who want a great night sleep on camp (students are guaranteed to be well worn out) ! 

Mountain Biking is a thrilling activity for those who want to extend their comfort zone and try something exhilarating. We offer programs for all levels of riding, from beginners to advanced, and with so many tracks available in South Australia, including many areas nearby to Adelaide, we can certainly cater to many groups.

Rock Climbing & Abseiling

Natural surface climbing is so rare to experience in today’s society, why not give students a chance to learn and trust their peers with a real hands-on experience. With many climbing locations within a short driving distance of Adelaide, rock climbing and abseiling can be offered both in single full day programs, or as part of a longer camp experience. Some places we visit include Adelaide Hills, Flinders Ranges, Victor Harbor and much more.

Nature based volunteering is a unique and special experience we can include in any camp. We have connections with dedicated not-for-profit organisations, that allows us to participate in activities such as animal surveying, planting trees, tracking feral species in an area, clearing walking paths, beach clean up, weeding invasive species and much more. Groups are given insights into how to make a positive impact in the environment they will one day inherit.

Adventure caving is an activity which is educational, physically and possibly mentally challenging, interactive and certainly very engaging for students. Adventure caving is predominantly delivered throughout the south east coast of South Australia, along what is known as The LImestone Coast. We also work together with National Park guides, who share knowledge of the local geology, explain how the caves were formed and why they are so important to science. If participants chose to, they can indeed crawl through various circuits within our ‘challenge by choice’ experience.


Archery is a unique activity that indeed many students cannot easily experience. Our archery programs are generally conducted in Adelaide metro areas, however we also have links to field archery in regional areas across South Australia. We teach students the basic skills, safety and of course provide all the equipment for student groups. Generally suited to ages 10+. Enquire today and we can tell you all about it!

SEA can offer a wide variety of bushwalking experiences across South Australia and beyond. We offer single day trips for groups in the Adelaide metro and Hills area, all the way up to expedition style journey programs for groups. We even offer hills X urban hybrid walks which can be some of the most interesting experiences for students (inspired by rogaining). Walking is not only affordable, but also one of the most powerful outdoor activities to unite a group, as we all travel together and have set roles to play within our walking squad. Bushwalking offers opportunities to develop leadership, teamwork, and decision making skills. Contact us today for more information.
