Garapine School Camps is an Outdoor Education Centre that provides facilitated outdoor education activities, accommodation and catering on the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, just south of Gympie. Set amongst natural bushland in the beautiful Mary Valley, Queensland, Garapine is the perfect setting in which students can challenge their own ability, realise their potential and build resilience, all while experiencing and enjoying the outdoors.   




Located in the Mary Valley, just 2 hours north of Brisbane and only 15 minutes south of Gympie, the property borders the Mary River and sits high on a hill overlooking the valley.

Garapine has a long history in outdoor education, and after some years being Government owned land due to the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam, kids and adults are once again able to enjoy this amazing location. Click here to learn more about Garapine’s  history.
