Equipment and attire during programs

All equipment is supplied for participants in all our activities at the centre. Participants must wear a hat and are encouraged to bring sunglasses, a full water bottle and wet weather gear (subject to weather conditions).

Because of the active nature of the programs offered, participants must wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Footwear

  • Enclosed lace up shoes are required for all land-based programs. Thongs or sandals are not suitable except for when transitioning to programs in the water including Raft Building and Paddling. During these water programs, enclosed lace-up shoes such as sneakers or water booties must be worn.
  • Participation in land-based or roping programs will not be allowed for persons wearing sandals or thong

Clothing

  • Singlet’s and short tops (e.g. crop tops) that leave the mid-riff exposed and do not cover shoulders are not suitable for roping programs such as abseiling or high ropes.
  • Skirts are not acceptable on most land or roping activities. Very short shorts are also discouraged. Trousers or shorts that cover at least 2/3 of the thigh are recommended.

Client responsibilities

All client groups with participants under the age of 18 years MUST supply appropriate adult supervision at each activity site. Point Walter staff will supervise the clients in relation to their safe participation in the activity; however client groups have the responsibility to monitor the behavior of participants in matters not relating to the activity. (e.g. a teacher would be responsible for a student leaving the activity area to change footwear or sport officials would discipline poor behavior of players.) Please refer to the Point Walter Centre Client Information Pack for further information.

Department of Education and Training (DET) guidelines

Most Outdoor 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.

NOTE: Point Walter management strongly recommend that all groups intending to use the pool or the Swan River use qualified life savers through the camp for water safety. All groups should check with their governing bodies to make sure that their water safety is in accordance with official procedures and guidelines.

Disability access and inclusive programs

Point Walter Recreation and Conference Centre is designed 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. Ablutions onsite are suitable for wheelchairs and people with disabilities.

Many of our programs can also be modified to include all participants. We own a purpose-built, specialised wheelchair that can be used for Abseiling and a modified Flying Fox program. We also provide specialised paddle craft for our paddling program, so all participants can share the experience. We can arrange extra instructors to ensure all participants are able to share a high quality, enjoyable experience.

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