Tumbelin Outreach

Tumbelin Outreach is a school and community-based adventure therapy program designed to challenge and support young people at-risk of harm associated with alcohol and other drug use. 

Tumbelin Outreach takes a relational and restorative approach to student wellbeing.  

Students are selected by schools for this voluntary program. 

Challenge by choice 

Through ‘challenge by choice’ principles students are encouraged to set goals and experience both personal and group success.  

Case Managers help students mine their Tumbelin experiences for learnings they can apply to their school and home context as well as addressing alcohol and other drugs use.   

Through a structured adventure-based learning program and group work, students become empowered to assess what is working in their life, what isn’t, and determine the steps they can take to make a positive difference

Students learn self-awareness, healthy peer relationships, managing emotions, healthy risk taking, goal setting, and decision making. 



Tumbelin Outreach is a term-long program where groups of 10 – 12 students undertake activities weekly, including off-site adventures. 

Activities increase in intensity throughout the program and culminate in a 3-4 night expedition.
