About this Unit
In this unit students connect with the natural world through outdoor adventure activities. Students learn about themselves, others, and the environment through a series of experiential activities. The unit focuses on self-reliance, resiliency, interdependence, managing personal risks, and the value of life-long outdoor recreation for enjoyment, health and well-being. This unit will involve two full-day practical field trips in the outdoors as well as lectures and tutorials. The practical field trips are physically demanding whilst also extending students mentally and socially. Given the nature of the bushwalking field trips, participants require a moderate level of personal fitness.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students will be required to provide their own hiking equipment. This would include appropriate hiking shoes and clothing, water bottle and first aid kit. If students don’t own this equipment they can borrow or hire it.
