Membership is...
More than just a membership

What our members are saying...

“Thank you for your leadership in this time. Your chairing of the industry meetings has been exemplary especially at a time when we are all feeling a little fresh to zoom meetings. We greatly appreciate the way you’ve carefully brought us together towards best practice – not an easy time for you no doubt!” 

Sam Hudson

Head of Christian Outdoor Education Youthworks

“Thank you for keeping us so well informed about the efforts of Outdoors NSW in trying to lobby the Government to allow our sector to re-open.  
We really appreciated your ability  
to get to the right people that need  to be spoken to.”

Brad Higgins

“Credit to all of the peak bodies for supporting an industry-wide return and to all of the providers who ARE doing the right thing with developing and implementing their COVID Safe plans. Your commitment and dedication is certainly widely appreciated!”

As an Outdoors NSW  & ACT member, you help us to represent the interests of all outdoor community users in NSW & the ACT. The greater the membership numbers, the stronger voice we are and the more we can achieve.


Our purpose is to raise the profile, increase participation, and develop capacity with opportunity for positive outdoor experiences, and environmental and cultural activities in NSW & the ACT, and play a leading role in promoting and developing the outdoors community in NSW, ACT, and beyond.

We do this through the representation of members and member groups, promotion of members and outdoor activities, and advocacy with government and land/water managers.


We also work with industry professionals to further the professionalism and integrity of our industry, and membership to Outdoors NSW & ACT enables the collective local voices of both the NSW & ACT outdoor operators to be heard at all levels of government, empowering us to help shape the future of our own industry.

We welcome membership applications from organisations and individuals involved in the outdoor industry.
