Rehabilitation adventure programs

Transformative programs to help you through recovery.

Our rehabilitation adventure programs are designed to help you grow stronger in every way.

From trekking, cycling and multi-activity adventures, our rehabilitation adventure programs are held in multiple locations across Australia. These are no ordinary adventures – they combine elements of both physical and psychological challenges to deliver life-changing results. Programs range from four to six days and cater to various fitness and ability levels.  

Our rehabilitation adventure programs provide an opportunity to extend yourself outside your comfort zone, build motivation, resilience, teamwork and trust. If you’re ready to reach new heights mentally and physically, we encourage you to view our current programs and submit an expression of interest.

Programs are open to eligible Mates, and their immediate family members who are registered as Mates.
