Combine sustainability education, community service, cultural immersion, and leadership development with adventure travel. Volunteer at an environmental education center in Keppel Bay Islands National Park; learn to surf at a 3-day surf camp; snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef; go canyoning in the Blue Mountains National Park; hike and explore Fraser Island National Park and gain insight into Aboriginal culture. You'll also have time to venture into Australia's largest cities: Sydney, Cairns, and Brisbane.

At the end of the program, students will have learned an enormous amount about Australia, its environmental and ecological history, and people.
