Outdoor Life – adventurous mental health support for adults, Geelong and surrounds


Outdoor Life is a group run by Geelong Adventure Specialist for adults suffering from mental illness. Outdoor adventure provides an opportunity to take risks and explore new possibilities: physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Explore local natural places (eg. You Yangs & Otway parks) and try a variety of activities – rock climbing, mountain biking, bushwalking, orienteering, abseiling.

Combining nature, exercise, adventure, healthy food and good company, this weekly program can assist to improve mental health and physical wellbeing. For adults who would like to include adventure in their treatment or support plan.

2 – 6 pm every Friday
