We also cater for school or scouting groups of any age. The children can help feed the numerous farm animals, go bushwalking, learn how to crack a stock whip and throw a boomerang as well as gold panning, team building exercises and an all-round true country life experience. Students can also have the opportunity to learn new skills through interacting with our reliable therapy horses; a great way to improve confidence!
The facilities at Yarrabin consist of an outdoor pool, heated spa, tennis court, sports field and games room complete with table tennis and pool table, as well as big screen TV; which are always a huge hit! The children can play independently or your staff can organise sporting competitions, movie night or other group activities. On request we could send you examples of itineraries that have previously been adopted by former schools. We can also run a equine therapy session that can be adjusted to a high school learning level. We can accommodate up to 40 kids in our cabins. Every cabin has its own ensuite and reverse cycle air-conditioning.
Limited catering can be organised upon request when booking. Our venue is an ideal space for organising just about any small group activity. Our bush land is ideal for scouting expeditions, so feel free to take advantage of that. If you would like to visit Yarrabin only for the day, we can design a package uniquely suited to your requirements. Being located 30 km out of Bathurst, Yarrabin is only a 3 hour drive from Sydney by car or slightly longer by train.
After organizing hundreds of kids’ camps and welcomed thousands of families over the decades, we have proven to be a safe and fun place for children of all ages.
Testimonial Melissa Fotea - Service Learning Facilitator Youth Off The Streets:
"We run Service Learning camps with adolescents involved with Youth Off The Streets. One of our favorite camps involves taking our adolescents to Yarrabin with young children from a local school for children with disabilities. The young children and adolescents enjoy horse riding, feeding the animals and playing in the games room. We find that Yarrabin is a perfect environment for school activities. The staff is warm, friendly and helpful and organizes anything we need. Yarrabin is a great place to visit any time of the year."
