Land’s Edge is one of Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisers of dynamic and progressive outdoor education experiences for young people.

For over 20 years, we have been delivering impactful, meaningful programming, with a whole child, whole curriculum and whole community focus. We favour an inquiry-based and lifelong learning approach, with a focus on students’ thinking skills, reasoning, problem-solving and evaluation.

Our activities range from school programmes and holiday activities, to school leaver trips and Duke of Edinburgh expeditions – each experience designed to get young people off their screens and into our beautiful natural world.

We work ethically and resourcefully to benefit young people, with the goal of improving both mental and physical health for all who engage with us.

The saying goes ‘a rolling stone gathers no moss’ – here at Land’s Edge Foundation we epitomise this saying. It’s not unusual to find us out investigating new locations and activities, contributing to industry developments and being leaders in best practise methods.

And because we never sit still, we’re very proud to announce the latest exciting changes that you should know about:

As of 2018 Land’s Edge transitioned into a Not for Profit organisation, now called the Land’s Edge Foundation.

The change in status will allow for three exciting eventualities.

Lands Edge Foundation

Firstly: as Land’s Edge is no longer privately owned, it allows the organisation to exist in its own right ensuring a positive pathway of existence well into the future.

Secondly: in an industry dominated by Not for Profits and Charities it allows the Land’s Edge Foundation to compete on a more equal footing with much larger organisations.

Thirdly; with long time staff members, stepping competently into the Chief Executive Officer role and Director of Land’s Edge Sydney Harbour, there will be no adverse changes to the fantastic service the organisation has provided.

As our customers would attest, the Land’s Edge Foundation Safety Management System is extremely successful and we like to think it is equal to, if not the best in the industry.

Never resting on our laurels however…..

Safety Management Certificate


Never resting on our laurels however we looked around for the most in depth and professional safety auditing process we could find – we found it in New Zealand.

Developed in conjunction with both the NZ outdoor industry and NZ government, the auditing process reviewed all our risk and safety management documentation against the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 21101 Adventure Tourism; we passed with flying colours.

It took hard work, some deep thinking and a few refinements to our systems and we now have an updated Safety Management System and Safety Management Plan that will form the foundation of our practice for years to come.

Land's Edge turns 20!
