These activities include The Charge, No Man's Land, Hoop, The Swinging Log, Commando Cable Crossing, Escape from Colditz and Skippy plus many more. 

Electives

Twister Buggies and Skirmish are offered as electives at our Helidon campus providing that extra opportunity for fun, personal challenge and teamwork.

Extension activities

Activities such as the Rope Run, Truck Pull and the Tower Jump are often used to push students that little bit further, and as a result, often become the catalyst for increased team performance.

Pindari facilities (NSW Campus)

Situated on approximately 2,500 acres bordering the Pindari dam, this campus provides a wilderness experience with a touch of class. Participants are issued with deluxe swags and a camp chair. Group shelters are purpose built and well equipped. Staff huts are also available as well as an onsite class room for meeting purposes and some night activities.

Motor boats & Hut

The Hut provides a range of unique experiences from fire lighting, billy boiling to yabby races and cooking  and consuming a loaded spud.

The Twister buggy track is both challenging and free flowing allowing participants of all abilities to test their driving skills.
