General Information

Hillary Outdoors is a charitable trust that strives to develop people's potential through outdoor education and adventure. Tertiary programmes are offered to those wanting to develop their outdoor skills, experience adventure and train towards careers in the outdoor industry. Hillary Outdoors is a registered Private Training Establishment (PTE). All qualifications focus on acquiring the technical skills needed for an outdoor career; to work safely in the outdoors, as well as personal development in leadership and facilitation. Group sizes are small which allows for development to take place in a supported environment through learning and teaching skills and sharing adventures. Hillary Outdoors operates from two centres in the North Island, one adjacent to the Tongariro National Park and the other on Great Barrier Island. The tertiary programmes are predominantly delivered from the Tongariro site there may be opportunities for students to visit our Great Barrier Island site as part of their studies.
