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 for Education 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.
