A study to understand what prevents and enables individuals from participating in outdoor recreation

Posted on 15.08.2019

Researchers at The University of Queensland are currently undertaking a study to understand what prevents and enables individuals from participating in outdoor recreation. This is an industry lead project by the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation (QORF) and is proudly supported by the Queensland Government to get more Queenslanders active through outdoor recreation.

If you are aged 18 to 29 years, they would very much welcome the opportunity to ask you about the outdoor activities you engage in currently, a little about yourself, as well as your thoughts about outdoor recreation in Queensland more generally.

The on-line survey, will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

After completing the survey, you have the option to go into a prize draw. If you do enter, your nominated club will go into a draw to win a $500 gift card; whereas you, individually, have the chance to win a $50 gift card.


Any questions you might have about the study can be initially directed via email to the study lead, Dr. Richard Buning at
