Tumbelin Farm

An Adventure for a Lifetime


Tumbelin Farm is a residential adventure therapy program for young South Australians aged 16 to 21 who want to overcome their alcohol and/or other drug issues and achieve lasting change.


“Tumbelin Farm saved my life. I’m 98% confident of being clean for good. If you want to sort out your life, I recommend coming here.”

– Tumbelin Farm resident





Tumbelin is a Ngarrindjeri word which means “Awaken and Live”.  Building capacity for positive, healthy relationships is at the heart of how young people are supported to become awake and alive. 

Getting out into nature and camping, bushwalking, kayaking, rock climbing and mountain biking creates opportunities for young people to take responsibility, discover strengths and learn new ways of being.

Located in the Mt Lofty Ranges about 45 minutes from Adelaide, the Farm is a working property and has capacity for 4 young people to stay at a time (8 from April 2020) in a therapeutic, community setting.

The residential rehabilitation program is voluntary and runs for up to 12 months through 4 stages:



Tumbelin Farm is based on the highly successful Tumbelin outreach Adventure Therapy program that Baptist Care has delivered across South Australia since 2009.
