Programs in Australia 

As the birthplace of the very first Rustic Pathways program in 1983, Australia programs feature service and adventure opportunities from the wilderness of the Outback to the depths of the Great Barrier Reef.


While there are many places I could call home, nowhere else on Earth has come close to Australia. Its natural beauty, abundant wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, rich cultural history, modern cities, and multicultural population are just some of its compelling characteristics. If you come, be prepared to leave a piece of your heart in Australia.
