We organise regular bushwalking, hiking and camping trips, as well as canyoning though the rugged gorge country surrounding Armidale. Whether you’re an experienced bushwalker or just keen to give it a try, we run a range of walks to suit everyone.

What is Camping?
Camping is an activity that involves staying overnight in the outdoors – either without shelter or in a basic protective shelter such as a tent. Camping covers a broad range of overnight experiences mostly focusing on enjoying the outdoors. It can include just staying in a tent in an area with modern comforts and facilities provided, to survivalists staying in secluded bushland with limited belongings and no facilities.
Camping often complements other outdoor recreational activities like bushwalking, rock climbing, and paddling. With UNEOAC trips, we often use camping as a social centre to our adventures, allowing members to socialise and relax in nature between activities.
