Great Aussie Camp Out

Great Aussie Camp Out

Celebrate the Great Aussie Camp Out

The Great Aussie Camp Out (GACO) brings together thousands of Australians for one big night where they share the experience of camping out under the stars … in their back yards, on a river bank, in a camp, a national park, a caravan park – in fact, anywhere they might feel like!

GACO promotes healthy active lifestyles, encouraging individuals, families, friends and clubs to enjoy the great outdoors experiencing the fun and adventure of camping out.

No prior camping experience necessary! Just enthusiasm and a willingness to give it a go!

Simply go online, register and start making plans … there are lots of great resources on the GACO website to help: Check out the Games and the Recipes .

The QORF Activities: Camping section has may useful resources too!
