Club History

The UNE Outdoor Adventure Club (UNE OAC) has been around since the 1960s, but it has grown a lot in that time. Originally, we started out as the UNE Mountaineering Club (UNEMC), where we were Mountaineering with a heavy focus on climbing. But as time went by, and we expanded our focus, we made the official decision to change our name to the UNE Outdoor Adventure Club.

Over our history, we have had all kinds of expertise make its way into our club and shape the activities we run. Some of these have also grown into their own distinct clubs.

  • Mountaineering
  • Indoor & Outdoor Climbing
  • Bouldering
  • Mountain Biking
  • Camping
  • Hiking & Bushwalking
  • Kayaking
  • Whitewater Rafting
  • Paddlesports

In 2013, the Indoor Climbing Wall underwent a major renewal to refresh our top rope walls and for the addition of a bouldering cave.
