Camp Activities

Group members can enjoy a range of fun and rewarding activities. During the day your groups members will spot wallabies hopping through the bush and deer wandering through the park. They might try a round of mini golf, a group challenge activity or test speed and strength on the Extreme Obstacle Course. At night they can participate in activities around the campfire, like cooking damper and marshmallows, maybe some storytelling, or try star gazing and spotlighting the night wildlife - another aspect of the Australian bush. You will see possums, owls, and a panoramic night-time sky full of stars and satellites that you just don’t see in the city.

Camp Activities

Other suggested activities you may wish to run for your students are detailed in our School Kit – available free of charge from our Guest Information page.

Water Based Activities

Gumleaves has a handful of row boats and canoes as well as life jackets available for your use. For larger groups, or where you need students to have the same type of watercraft as each other, we would recommend bringing your own watercraft – there is vehicle access to the lake, and permanent jetties.In the warmer months, for the braver students (and teachers), you may wish to go swimming in the lake. Please note that Gumleaves do not provide life guards, so it will be a requirement of your school for there to be supervision by someone with a Bronze Medallion.

Nearby Attractions

Alternatively you can use Gumleaves as a base from which day trips can be organised. Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park is just over an hour to the north, and the ferry to Maria Island National Park is just 20 minutes to the south. Visits to either of these National Parks will give your kids wonderful opportunities to learn about Tasmania’s past, to get physical and get back to nature.
