Have you worked for an international Outward Bound School, or another expedition based outdoor education provider?

Are you looking for opportunities to lead Outward Bound programs in Australia in 2019?

We are very keen to talk to you!


Working with Outward Bound Australia

Outward Bound Australia has 2 main bases, in Tharwa just south of Canberra and in Uki, near Murwillimbah in the NSW Northern Rivers. We operate in 11 locations across Australia and we expect that our Instructors will have the opportunity to work across many of these.

Working with Outward Bound Australia means:

  • Starting in early 2019;
  • Opportunities in stunning locations across Australia;
  • Generally 5-14 day journey programs;
  • Programs aimed at teenagers and young adults;
  • Flexibility around our peak times to give you the chance to explore.


What skills and Qualifications do we need?

We are looking for experienced Outdoor Instructors that have:

  • A driver's licence;
  • A Bronze Medallion or higher qualification;
  • Qualifications or formal training in climbing and abseiling on natural surfaces. These are essential elements of all our programs;
  • Significant experience in journey based programs, including off track navigation;
  • Significant experience or qualifications in either flat water canoeing, white water canoeing and rafting, or mountain biking.


Outward Bound Australia is a Child Safe Organisation

The safety of children on our programs is critical. Outward Bound Australia is a child safe organisation and you will need to get a working with children or police clearance before you start working with us.


Working Holiday Visas

With the recent changes to the Australian Government's approach to working holiday visas, we have the opportunity to offer 12 months work in different locations if you are eligible for this type of visa.

If you are prepared to apply for a 2nd working holiday visa we may be able to extend this into 2020.



Don't let the cost of getting to Australia hold you back from starting a conversation with us. We're happy to talk about options, depending on the commitment you can give us in return.
