Stage One: Meeting the Mountains

Wollangarra’s renowned introductory program, Meeting the Mountains, offers young people from 14 –17 years the chance to discover the joy of hiking in our beautiful mountains. Young people journey in small, well organised and fully supervised hiking groups. With these expeditions Wollangarra hopes to encourage an awareness of our environment

Meeting the Mountains is a five-day course with two nights on hike, and two nights on the farm to experience the pioneer lifestyle of the Wollangarra homestead. Young people hike in small groups of 10-12.

The hike is designed to be an enjoyable experience for the young people, as we are looking to establish a positive connection between them and the mountains. The hikers return on Thursday evening to a hot shower and a lamb roast dinner waiting for them. After dinner we sit around the open fire and swap our stories from the week.

School holiday programs currently cost $250 per participant. We aim to keep this cost as low as possible, and try to ensure that Wollangarra programs are accessible to all young people who want to attend. However, this cost increases annually to ensure it covers the costs of running programs. Full and partial sponsorships are available on every course. Please don’t hesitate to call Wollangarra on 03 5148 0492 or email to discuss.

Bookings close two weeks before the stage I, so we can receive all medical forms and send out transportation information to you prior to the program.
