Mount Buller 6 day trip

Here is a short video we made during our 6-day trip with Melbourne Gramma in 2017 starting on Mt Buller. This camp was about challenges and self-management in an alpine environment. 

The tour started with the pump track to make sure we have everybody at a minimum skill level before heading onto the trails. In the first few days there is a bit of time devoted to further skills but toward the middle, we move onto the objectives and outcomes set by the school which could include physics, challenge, nutrition, careers, environment and tall stories of history.

You can see the long version of the video here https://youtu.be/ZsWjEzCidaY

Lysterfield day trip

Not all of our MTB adventures are multi day. More often we deliver activities close to the school.

This video is a Sandringham College day at Lysterfield, SOmetimes kids just need to get out, have a bit of exercise, learn some skills and just mix it up.

Lysterfield is a great venue, with the lake in the centre and a very diverse managed park, we often divide the group up into 2 or 3 smaller groups. We deliver

A nature discovery / history walk with a parks official

A paddling activity on the lake

A Mountain bike adventure with multiple choices of tracks so satisfy begginers and those who want to challenge themselves
