Uniquely Australian
School Camp Experiences

Inspiring outdoor education, school camps and adventure leadership programs for schools and universities.

Black Diamond Adventures offer distinctly Australian school camps and formative outdoor education programs including personal development journeys within NSW and across the country.

Covid Safe Business

Some of our offerings include custom outdoor education programs, beach and bush school camps, a variety of Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expeditions, as well as focused leadership development for schools, universities and other organisations.

Through every Black Diamond Adventure participants gain a greater appreciation of what they are capable of and what it means to be Australian.

Aside from developing personal life skills, we also impart technical skills associated with various outdoor activities and bush skills to enhance one’s knowledge of the Australian way of life.

Black Diamond Adventures operates out of a number of locations around NSW. We also run incursion day programs for local Illawarra and Sydney schools, as well as adventures further afield to outback Australia and other locations of historical and cultural significance.
