WHAT IS IT?
The 10 day program sees groups of up to 24 young people, accompanied by two clydesdale horses, walk away from electricity and modern comforts, through the Victorian High Country and into the 400acre pioneer style property, that is Mittagundi. They spend time working together on the farm, fencing, growing food, milking cows, working with wood, steel and wool. Then embark on adventures rafting the Mitta Mitta River and abseiling off a local cliff face before walking back through the mountains and returning to civilisation.
The atmosphere at Mittagundi is simple, honest and happy. There are no watches, no timetables and no money. Instead there is an opportunity for young people to live and work together with others in an environment where people matter more than anything else.
Please note - young people need to have already turned FOURTEEN before they can attend a 10 day program.

WHO CAN GO?
Courses are made up of young people aged 14-17 from a wide variety of schools and backgrounds. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anyone else when you arrive, in fact it can be better this way, as you are free to be whoever you want to be! You don't need to be super fit either or have any experience with camping or farm life. It's all about giving it a go..
Mittagundi encourage only 6 students from the 1 school on any one program.
