The adventure club provides opportunities for students to explore remote areas in SE Queensland and Northern NSW.

Extended trips in other areas may be offered depending on student and staff interest. A trip is planned for each term leaving on the Friday night and returning on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Costs are kept to a minimum but may include camping fees and entrance to national parks. Students would be expected to provide their own food and some specialist equipment such as a bike. The college has lightweight tents, backpacks and camping equipment available for student use. A pre trip planning meeting would usually be held prior to a club activity.

Other trips involving canoeing, snorkelling, mountain biking and fishing may be offered depending on staff expertise and student interest, Assistance from parents is always appreciated especially if you are qualified in any of the activities offered by the Club.
