The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – Australia
Get more out of your Duke of Edinburgh’s Adventurous Journey by stepping into an experience that will be no less than Optimum! With the Kangaroo Valley and Morton National park on our doorstep, this spectacular environment of rocky escarpments and pristine bush land provides the ideal venue to kindle your sense of adventure.
Optimum Experiences provides the Duke of Ed participants the opportunity to endeavour upon a range of journeys across all Award levels. Experiences are available in Bushwalking, Canoeing and Mountain Biking, or any combination of the three!
Our qualified and experienced instructors will equip all participants with the skills and equipment necessary to be successful, with learning opportunities available in preparation training days and practice expeditions. This allows students to get a taste for the outdoors whilst developing the skills required to complete their journey with confidence.
Along the way, you will not only learn what it takes to survive in the natural environment, but also about your true potential and what it takes to be a part of a team!
