The Great Aussie Bush Camp Offers Two School Holiday Camps near Lake Macquarie

Our Original School Holiday Camp at Port Stephens

Tea Gardens is the first school holiday camp we opened up fourteen years ago. Since the initial opening, we’ve seen great success. We are now the leading provider of school holiday camps to Hunter Valley and enjoy a satisfaction rating of 9.5 out of 10. Teachers, parents and students of all ages love our family friendly camps and our engaging programs. We work hard to provide the highest quality facilities, programs, and highly trained staff to all students. We believe that students should have a memorable experience at our original school holiday camp. With Port Stephens located close by and the small coastal town of Hawk’s Nest to the east, we have chosen the perfect location for students to enjoy their school holiday.

Our New School Holiday Camp by Newcastle

Since becoming the leading provider of school holiday camps in Hawk’s Valley, we decided to open another school holiday camp near Newcastle to make it easier for all in the Sydney area to attend The Great Aussie Bush Camp. Our new Kincumber school holiday camp is near Lake Macquarie and Newcastle and set on forty hectares of picturesque Aussie bushland. We give students comfortable accommodations without removing them too far from the back-to-nature experience. We’ve seen it proven that students learn better and participate more when given a more authentic bush camp experience, which is why we strive to deliver the most authentic experience without compromising kid’s comfort.

The Wide Range of Activities We Offer

All campers can enjoy canoeing, rock climbing, and raft building activities at both of our camp locations. We also offer programs designed to engage and enrich certain age groups. For primary schools, our highly trained staff leads children through our “Eureka It’s Gold” and Rainforest Adventure programs. Our secondary school programs include our new Rock and Water Initiative and for Year 11 and 12 students, our Crossroads Program. For students of all ages, we offer Anti-Bullying and Peer Support programs to promote choosing safe and supportive relationships and how to resolve interpersonal conflicts effectively. See our “Activities” page to read more about these proven programs.

If you’re looking to give your students or children a memorable experience learning at an authentic Aussie bush camp, we are the best place to go. Our two school holiday camps in Hunter Valley have been enriching the lives of students from all over NSW for years.
