Join the Great Vic Bike Ride

The perfect school camp

Give your students the chance to experience a school camp like no other at the Great Vic Bike Ride. You’ll join us for 5 or 10 days riding through the beautiful coastal and forest landscapes along the Limestone Coast, the Great Ocean Road and through the Great Otway National Park.

School students on the Great Vic bike ride

The Great Vic gets students outside and active, develops camaraderie, independence, resilience and teaches the value of achievement.

You’ll take away students excited for an adventure and return with a group of resilient people united by a life achievement. You’ll also find that with a growth in maturity, school performance also improves.

But don’t just take our word for it …

Teacher testimonal

“There’s a really strong sense of achievement that they (the kids) get out of that challenging experience.”

“It enabled us as teachers to develop a rapport with some of the kids for whom school was a bit challenging. This was an event where they could get in there and be really physical and really active. That had a spin-off in terms of getting alongside those kids and getting engaged with them more.”

Kevin Purvis – teacher at Old Orchard Primary School
