What activities are there to do at Camp Kookaburra?

There are lots of great fun activities with an emphasis on safety. Some include flying fox, archery, abseiling, climbing walls…. for a full rundown visit the Activities page.

I am concerned about the safety aspects of some of the activities at Camp such as abseiling, canoeing and the flying fox…how safe are these?

The above activities are all run and taught by our trained and experienced staff in conjunction with a teacher/leader from your group.

Our canoeing area is a medium sized shallow series of dams, our training dam is about the size of an Olympic swimming pool and is approximately half a metre deep. Our other connecting dams are 1.2 metres deep. Students are not able to proceed from the training dam until they have met our basic skill criteria and are always supervised by a Camp Kookaburra staff member and a teacher/ leader.

Abseiling and the flying fox are conducted by a Camp Kookaburra Staff member using the most current equipment and techniques.

What about the other activities?

All other Camp activities are run by a teacher/leader after a comprehensive safety briefing by Camp Kookaburra Staff. Archery is not available to self catered groups
