Serving the school children of QLD and NSW for over 35 years

The ideal venue for primary schools and high schools, Midginbil Hill offers Years 2 to 12 school children an adventure camp on a 400 acre farm bordered by the rainforests of the Tweed Valley.

Located just 2 hours south of Brisbane, 45 minutes drive south from Coolangatta, and 3 hours north of Coffs Harbour, some of our schools have been coming to Midginbil Hill for 30 years or more.  Some have left us to try other camps, and nearly all have returned due to the high standards we have set.

Our camps are designed for groups from 25-95 students, but we can accommodate smaller and larger groups on request.

As you can imagine, schools all over South East QLD and Northern NSW, have posponed their Term 1 & 2 school camps, but for busy OECs, they'll already be booked out for Terms 3 and 4, so please contact us now to secure your preferred date.   We are a COVID-19 safe registered business, and we're in the Border Zone.   We have availability, (and did we mention, new owners and management.)

Teachers Feedback

"It has been an excellent experience for the kids and we have seen a co-operation between students that has not been evident at school.

The easy and relaxed structure of the camp has given our students a camp that they will always remember.

We have appreciated the professionalism and expertise of your staff and it has resulted in relaxed and happy teachers."
Teacher - NSW Secondary School.

" Thank you so much for the superb organisation and attention to detail you provided for our Year 6 camp.

Cleaning up 
All the staff were most professional in their manner during the activities which made the children feel comfortable and confident. This also allowed them to take risks both mentally and physically.

We also appreciated the catering and cleaning staff, the food was substantial and tasty and our accommodation clean.

We look forward to seeing you again next year."
Principal - Qld Christian School.
