Outdoor recreation programs are the foundation of what Point Walter provides to the community. Since 1996, structured programs have been offered at Point Walter. They have evolved to contain 13 distinct recreation programs, with an additional range of program variations, training packages, workplace adventures and custom developed programs.

Department of Education and Training (DET) guidelines

Most adventure recreation programs at Point Walter meet or exceed the DET guidelines for outdoor pursuits. In consideration of specific environments at the site, variations from the DET guidelines exist to increase safety. 

Disability access and inclusive programs

Point Walter Recreation and Conference Centre aims to be inclusive through its programs and facilities. All accommodation and dining areas around the centre can be accessed by hard surface paths and ramps and universal access shower and toilet facilities are available in all accommodation and function room areas.

Some recreation programs (abseiling, flying fox, archery and paddling) can be modified to suit various disability. With the use of special equipment, we are able to manage any risks and ensure all participants can share the experience and enjoy their time during the program.

Any group with special requirements should arrange a site tour before booking the facility to ensure the site is suitable and to discuss options when booking programs. This can be arranged by calling 08 9492 9784.

The Point Walter Centre is recognized by the You’re Welcome WA Access Initiative which assists people with disability, their families and carers to find all the accurate, detailed and easy to understand access information necessary to make decisions about which businesses, community services and facilities meet their specific requirements.
