Facilities

hardtop lodgings and camping.
Adventure challenges.
Indigenous studies.

Jungai is bordered by State Forest and accommodates up to 156 in newly upgraded facilities. And an additional 50 people can camp in tents, on site.

Established to promote race reconciliation and with strong ties to the local community - local indigenous leaders take educational walks and courses in both bush tucker, and native plants traditionally used for medicine - Jungai is perfect for groups looking to immerse themselves in indigenous Australian culture, and test their physical abilities via a wide variety of land, and water-based courses.

Accommodation

Lodges.
Cabins.
And open air camping.

Jungai features 10 X 12 bed cabins. An 8 bed leader’s lodge. And a self-contained, 28 bed lodge. There’s also the option of sleeping out under the stars (canvas coverings provided).

All cabins and lodges come equipped with reverse-cycle air-conditioning/heating, ensuite facilities.

One cabin is also wheelchair accessible and able to host up to 4 wheelchair users.

Catering

Bush tucker.
Kitchen Garden.
Open fire cooking.

At Jungai we promote healthy eating and more considered consumption habits by harvesting, cooking, and eating together. As a group. By involving students from picking to plating, we equip them with the knowledge and skills to prepare delicious meals for themselves. And families, thereafter.

We also focus on native ingredients. Or those we’ve grown ourselves. And put waste to good use by either composting it, or turning it into animal feed.

Spaces

Activity centre. Performance centre.
Dining hall. Conference rooms.
Open air spaces.

Our activity centre is set up for arts and indoor space. This multifunctional space ensure the action doesn’t stop when the weather sets in.

The conference room has been designed to optimise sound, making it a great space for presentations and performances of every kind.

And we have several Open Air Spaces - some under cover - suitable for most sizes of gathering.

Both the dining hall and performance centre have wheelchair accessible toilets.

Programs

All Ages. Diverse levels of challenge.

All programs are hands-on. And designed to challenge both body, and mind.

Energising adventure activities, nutritious and delicious self-made food, and uplifting music classes are all used to teach students that doing is the best way of learning. And that with effort comes reward.
