Welcome to Withnell Outdoor Adventure
Experience the ultimate outdoor education course right here in Perth’s southern hills. Our state of the art facilities and natural bush setting provides a unique environment for students to learn through adventure.
Students can ride along the track in Bungendore Park, test their limits on our new 20 element High Ropes Course and fly down one of the highest abseiling towers in Western Australia. If they’re up for more they can always take the plunge on our Giant Swing or jump in a canoe and paddle on the recreational lake at Wungong dam. There are also opportunities to test your group’s survival and navigational skills through our Orienteering course.
At Withnell Outdoor Adventures, our aim is to facilitate an environment within which students can learn through a unique outdoor experience. We provide state of the art facilities and professionally qualified instructors to support your excursions. Our facilities and activities extend beyond the classroom and are ideal for group and personal growth. Challenge your students while they have fun creating memorable experiences!
In early 2020, Baptist Camping Centres were approached to facilitate the booking process.
We understand that many schools have dedicated Outdoor Education staff. We are more than happy to partner with your school’s instructors to accommodate your choice of excursion.
Your safety is our first priority and we are committed to ensuring that your school’s outdoor adventure is also a safe experience. All our instructors are qualified professionals.
Our instructors are responsible for ensuring that the equipment used is in perfect working condition and supervise groups at all times.
All activities are ideal for developing leadership skills, learning how to cooperate and solve problems as a group, developing an adventurous spirit, managing personal risks, understanding nature through direct experience and much more.
Please note: Optimum group sizes for each activity is 16 members per group. Larger groups are welcome and the same rule applies. Simply divide participants into multiple groups of 16 (1 group), 32 (2 groups), 48 (3 groups), etc. Smaller groups are welcome, however, minimum costs per person (as listed below) applies.
HIGH ROPES COURSE
High Ropes Course
Come and be challenged by our 20 element High Ropes Course. With 5 entry points and a unique platform design, the course offers maximum flexibility in accommodating multiple adventurers on numerous routes.
Our abseiling tower is one of the highest purpose built towers in Western Australia. With platforms at 9m, 17m and 29m, our abseiling tower offers a challenge to even the most experienced adventurer. First-time abseilers have the opportunity to build their confidence on the 9m platform and work their way up to the higher platforms.
Test your limits as you fly through the air and experience the exhilaration of the Giant Swing. Students are elevated up to a height of 10m and then released while safely secured by a harness.
Ride through Bungendore Park on a mountain bike! Experience the natural beauty.
Canoeing is held on the recreational lake at the bottom of Wungong dam. Students are fully equipped with safety gear and instructed in canoeing techniques (to paddle on the lake, not to splash their teammates!).
Navigate around the scenic Bungendore Park. Students will be taught how to read a map and use a compass to find their way to different points in the park.
Participants can experience the challenge of archery, shooting arrows into targets using compound bows.
Archery attack is similar to paintball, but is played with bow and arrows. The arrows have large foam tips and players wear a face shield while on the battle field.
Be challenged on our artificial climbing wall, connected to a safety belay.
