Stayed on an organised event "Fathers Kids Weekend". Fantastic. Billy, Rachel and Dan were fantastic in making sure our time was more than a few events. The whole trip is structured specifically to ensure that you get the best out of your time. The adventures and equipment are great, but the team makes sure that everyone gets involved and has...

My son participated on a five day camp in the May holidays & had an AWESOME time. I went to help out and was just so happy to see him thrive in the fantastic environment they have at BMAC.

Thank you Blue Mountain for the wonderful weekend...we have taken away new experiences, new friendships, and memories that the children will not forget. Particularly loved the white water rafting... I wasn't sure I could do it...but I did! Very special family bonding time for us all. Thank you.

Went to BMAC for a team-bonding weekend and that's exactly what we got. We stayed in the house adjacent to BMAC (organised by BMAC) and the cosy accommodation was perfect for our small group, providing warm lounges, and a big kitchen for us to cook together in. Our instructor was really friendly and extremely skilled in the adventure activities, ensuring...

Over the past 3 years, I have organised a group of girlfriends to escape for a weekend away from kids, husbands, busy jobs, busy lives, mobile phones and internet to try something different and to be pushed out of their comfort zones, all whilst having a great bonding time.

“Our group stayed in a house right next to BMAC that they sometimes use when they have multiple groups in. We loved it because there were heaps of bedrooms with proper beds as opposed to bunkrooms. Suited out group of nine perfectly and ensured we all had really good sleeps!”

“Lots of separate bunk beds on wire frames which can be noisy. Some of us dragged our mattresses into the lounge to sleep on.”
