Who we are

At Arbury Park Outdoor School, students, parents and teachers from all parts of South Australia, come to live and learn together, in an active and exciting camp experience.

The school is a purpose built residential facility, situated on 32 hectares near Bridgewater in the southern Mount Lofty Ranges, 23 km from Adelaide. It is a state-wide service of the Department of Education and Child Development, and commenced operation in 1976.

Students from both government and non-government schools experience outdoor learning in a residential setting for 3 to 5 days.

The school grounds include stringybark forest, a gully with a series of ponds and ephemeral wetlands, and open woodland areas. Nearby locations include Mt George Conservation Park, the Heysen Trail, and Cox Creek, the focus of a community Landcare project.
