Campaspe Downs camp, Victoria

An hour’s drive from Melbourne, PGL Campaspe Downs is set amid 160 acres of stunning natural bushland in the Macedon Ranges,  an adventure camp close to Kyneton and Hanging Rock.

Situated around a central lake, Campaspe Downs camp accommodates up to 400 guests in cabins and platform tents, and boasts a wide range of exciting adventure activities – from flying fox to canoeing, archery, laser tag and so much more.

All PGL Australia camps focus on developing students’ love for the outdoors and for nature, while also with working with teachers/group leaders to facilitate specific learning outcomes for their students, whether that be resilience, independence, relationship building or fun!

Stuart Davie
Centre Manager, PGL Campaspe Downs

“Originally hailing from sunny Scotland, I joined PGL in the UK in 2002 as a Housekeeping Assistant.

I worked at various UK centres then moved to Australia in 2016 to join Campaspe Downs. Myself and the team love hosting guests at our site, as it gives everyone a chance to experience such a wonderful environment. We pride ourselves on making the outdoor as accessible as possible for everyone. From sunrise to sunset every participant has the opportunity to develop and try new things in a safe and supportive environment.

When I’m not at work you will find me spending time with my family, volunteering and doing some home DIY (not always successfully).

I look forward to welcoming you to PGL Campaspe Downs in the future!”
