Laurel Hill Forest Lodge Adventure Activities

The goal of the Laurel Hill Forest Lodge adventure staff is to expose individuals to new experiences that will contribute to their personal development. Physical and mental challenges are presented in the context of teamwork, mutual trust and problem solving with the goal of each participant being to develop an appreciation of their self worth. We strive to provide safe, professional and fun activities. Laurel Hill Forest Lodge Adventure staff are happy to tailor a program to suit your groups needs and can offer all the following activities:

Team Skills
Team building is a must for your group to bond, gel and trust each other. Participate in various activities that will make you think. Everybody must work together to get the ultimate solution and benefit from the team building activities




We have developed orienteering courses in which you will learn the skills of how to read a topographic map and how to drive a compass. You will be given the grid references of your courses set around Laurel Hill Forest Lodge, then the team must work together to plot the course. Using the knowledge you have learnt  navigate through the bush and work out the code to finish in record time.


The team is given a scenario, for example: build a bridge over a creek or even pitch a tent 2m off the ground in the middle of a paddock – but all you have is a heap of poles and twine! The team is to design, construct and complete the scenario.



Learn the right way to approach problem solving, then use your initiative! We say that on the initiatives course you will gain experience and practice in confronting problems and solving them. Different scenarios will be given for the team to solve, so sit back, assess the problem, get everybody’s ideas and then go with the best. A great leadership / team building activity.


Adventure Games
Crate Climb
Self confidence and team-work are the framework behind these games and are ideal for any type of group be it school or corporate. Share a laugh as your team will try a problem over and over again and then finally realise that the answer was in-front of you all the time. A program can be tailor made to suit any group and we guarantee you’ll leave with a newfound sense of connection within your team.



Outdoor Survival
Shelter building competitions, compass and navigation work are the story here. Learn (or brush up) to navigate to a chosen site and we will give you a scenario so that you can build a shelter worthy of spending the night in. The option to do so is always there!!



Bush Walking
Take a guided walk and enjoy the best bush Australia has to offer. We utilise forestry trails and the beautiful Hume and Hovell walking track for an experience you will not forget. You will feel like you are the only people left on earth and if you are lucky, you will see wild brumbies, lyre-birds, kangaroos, wallabies and sometimes the occasional dingo. For a relaxing nature experience this option is a must.


Overnight Camp Outs
Stay out in the bush overnight; pitch your own shelter to sleep under or if the weather is nice sleep under the stars. Have a few activities around the campfire and share stories, jokes and maybe a bit of karaoke



Mountain Bike Rides

Ride through some of the most beautiful country in Australia catching glimpses of lyre-birds, wild brumbies and kangaroos. We have developed routes to suit different levels of fitness and ability from easy rambles through undulating countryside to some of the most scariest down-hills you will ever see. Stop for morning/ afternoon tea and listen to the wildlife then continue to the pickup/drop-off point for a well deserved spot of lunch or dinner.
