WHO ARE WE?

Outdoors NSW & ACT is the peak body for Outdoor Recreation, Outdoor Education, Adventure Tourism & Nature Therapy in the state of NSW and the Australian Capital Territory. We support our members in building sustainable careers, organisations and industry operations that get our communities more connected to nature for their health and wellbeing.

Man Playing Didgeridoo

Outdoors NSW & ACT is richer for understanding the importance of our country’s beginnings and the traditional ownership, care and custodianship by Aboriginal people.

 

We pay our respects to Elders past and present and to all Aboriginal people. We hope that we may continue the discussions and action to educate our future generations on this important culture for Australia and the world.
