Outward Bound Australia: Summit To Sea

Good Morning,

I hope you are keeping well. I was hoping to promote our epic Summit To Sea Program amongst young adults (18 years plus) in your local community. It is a great opportunity for Yr 12 students looking for an alternative to ‘schoolies’ or the general public 18-25 years. I am open to your suggestions as to the best way to share this message within your local community. The program is scheduled to run January 4-29, 2016. There is an early bird discount on the program fee if booked before October 4, 2015.

As previously mentioned, we have recently released some excellent footage of some of the activities undertaken on our programs: http://on.fb.me/1EchHhQ. Outward Bound programs are very highly regarded by employers – check out this excellent video released by our international colleagues in the UK .


Thanks for your time.



Kind regards,



Liz Grellman
