We mixed things up a bit with our recent come and try rock climbing day – with the chilly weather we thought it was the perfect chance to run an indoor activity for once. The kind staff at @northwalls in Brunswick opened the gym early just for us and briefed the team on safe climbing skills. Once the induction was complete, the team gracefully challenged themselves on the verticals and slightly overhanging wall. After many hours, the team was spent! So, we set off to Royal Park for a nice leisurely stroll before heading back to Out Doors.Have you ever considered giving rock climbing a go but weren’t sure if it was right for you? Climbing is doing a great job of making the sport as inclusive as possible. We love to help people access new, challenging activities like climbing, but we’re not alone. There are other great organisations out there like @adaptiveclimbingvic that are helping more people get the chance to experience rock climbing. Here’s a link to a recent article by the ABC about the subject - www.abc.net.au/news/2022-06-15/rock-paraclimbing-disability-adaptive-climbing-victoria/101152316#outdoorsinc#getoutdoors#rockclimbing#comeandtry#adaptiveclimbingvictoria#trysomethingnew...

Out Doors participants, Caz, Tammy, and Brad have written this beautiful piece about their experiences on the Great Ocean Road Wellbeing Holiday. Here's a sneak peak… "At night we liked to sit on the balcony and listen to the ocean. It was so loud we felt like we were sitting on the beach. We could hear the waves noisily pounding, breaking, and coming into shore. It was a wonderful sound and we felt like we could sit there forever."Click the link to read the full article: bit.ly/39TdmMD#outdoorsinc#getoutdoors#wellbeing#greatoceanroad#participantstories#bettermentalhealth...

With the winter solstice approaching, a group of us set off to Bright for some time in the mountains. We enjoyed walks around Mount Buffalo where we encountered Eurobin Falls in full force thanks to all the recent rain! Throughout the week we explored the region with a selection of short walks around Bright, Beechworth, Myrtleford, and more. It was a great group dynamic with everyone getting along well and enjoying themselves – especially when we were in the snow. One evening Ricky made everyone scones for everyone and we enjoyed some Scrabble most evenings around the fire. A great week all up. #outdoorsinc#getoutdoors#abrightadventure#bright#snow...
