Dooloomai is an independent not for profit organisation delivering Bush Adventure Therapy and outdoor education experiences. We provide challenging and meaningful experiences for participants by combining the natural environment, a simple lifestyle and Bush Adventure therapy techniques. Creating unique opportunity for self-reflection, personal motivation and positive change.


From local bush to remote wilderness, or nestled in the heart of the 25 hectare Dooloomai property (near the eastern foothills of Ben Lomond National Park). Our programs offer the chance for participants to gain psychological, physical, social, behavioural, environmental health and wellbeing benefits. 


“Our mission is to provide the opportunity for participants to develop an awareness of themselves and others, to form connections to their communities allowing for positive change.”
