Lake Macquarie

Stunning Lake Macquarie

At The Great Aussie Bush Camp, we strive to deliver the best possible opportunities for students to achieve outdoor recreation based teaching and learning outcomes that are fun, challenging, diverse, relevant and memorable.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce our third centre at Lake Macquarie, around 90 minutes north of Sydney. Being that there’s ‘one great Aussie, three great locations, students can have more than one Great Aussie Bush Camp experience without ever feeling that they’ve ‘been there, done that’.

Situated at the WEC – Yarabah conference centre in Morisset, where Stockton Creek and Dora Creek meet, the location provides enormous open space as well as broad river frontage to give you the feeling of being one with your natural environment.

Curriculum Centred

Lake Macquarie’s location and size gives schools and teachers even more options for planning tailor-made teaching and learning experiences that will achieve a range of cross curriculum outcomes, all within a perfect outdoor education environment.

Depending on each school’s needs, programs can be sequentialised across all three centres to achieve student outcomes from across all stages of learning and curriculum areas.

Whether you need a retreat style environment suitable for syllabus camps or an action packed centre with activities suited to all ages, Lake Macquarie still guarantees “way too much fun” for both primary and secondary schools.

A Wide Range of Programmed Activities

Our site at Lake Macquarie has many of the classic activities that students and teachers have come to love at our existing centres. But to add a little more adventure to your fun, we’ve also tailored our high ropes courses to be age appropriate all with exciting flying fox finishes.

Don’t worry though, if you prefer your challenges to be a little closer to the ground, we’ve got you covered as well. Just because they’re not high in altitude doesn’t mean they’re not high in adventure and adrenalin. Which ever activities you choose, we’re certain you’ll return home in high spirits and with plenty of equally tall stories of your Great Aussie Bush Camp adventure.
