Programs designed to empower

Since its inception in 1998, Wilderness Experience Training (WET) has delivered countless programs to business houses, schools, corporations, professional sporting teams and elite athlete experiential training for the New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) in beautiful Kangaroo Valley, just two hours from Sydney and three hours from Canberra.

Our experiential training programs utilise outdoor adventure experiences as a catalyst for positive change and are designed to enhance the intrinsic development of participants which in turn positively stimulates group cohesion, group dynamics and reaffirms a desired cultural change.

All programs are tailored to our clients’ desired goals and required outcomes, and can be held in various locations with in-house conferencing facilities available. Accommodation can vary between 5 star or an outdoor camping experience, or a combination of both. Not confined simply to Kangaroo Valley, we also facilitate programs all around Australia, we can also run our programs in other parts of NSW, Queensland and the Northern Territory.
