We strive to ensure Outdoor Adventure Tourism within South Australia continues to grow and prosper into the future. We aspire to ensure adequate steps are being taken into the future maintenance and development of the state’s tourism needs and standards.
We believe that Outdoor Education, as a subject delivered within schools and at universities is a critical learning medium for students. The use of outdoor education methodologies within teaching is a profound style of learning which develops understanding about oneself, others and the environment.
Outdoor Recreation encompasses a large number of outdoor pursuits which engage many South Australians in healthy long term physical activities enhancing the wellbeing of our State. We seek to strengthen this sector by providing a voice to the great diversity of recreational groups and communities.
