Geocaching

Have you ever daydreamed about going on a hunt for a hidden treasure? Geocaching is the world’s largest real life outdoor treasure hunting game, using GPS-enabled devices. Learn how to navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

Foodie’s tour

Join us once a week as we go on a food journey around Albury. Why not try a different beer every week while spending time building social, emotional and community skills? Explore the local community and try everything Albury has to offer. 

Virtual Reality

Have you ever wanted to walk across the London Bridge? Stroll the gardens of the Taj Mahal or witness the enormity of the Great Pyramids of Egypt? Unlimited exploration awaits within the virtual reality world. 

Boxing

Interested in giving boxing a go? Want to get fit in a fun way? Have some fun learning the basics of boxing for fitness in a real boxing gym with a former professional boxer!
