I was interviewed on ABC Radio.

Tasmanian adventure therapy leading the nation.

On Your Afternoon with Helen Shield.


Helping in the kitchen at the Tasmanian Men’s Gathering.

Nick Hall is devoted to Bush Adventure Therapy and “what’s so brilliant about it.”

Now his expertise has been called on in NSW, with an invitation for the Tasmanian Men’s Gathering team to run the Sydney National Men’s Gathering in Katoomba.

The oversight body for Nick’s line of work, the Australian Association for Bush Adventure Therapy Inc., defines the technique as ‘combining adventure and outdoor environments with the intention to achieve therapeutic outcomes for those involved,’ and while in his private practice Nick sees clients of all genders, he believes in the Men’s Gathering retreat model as well.

“When you get gender specific, it changes how that conversation takes place,” Nick explains.

“Things happen they probably wouldn’t talk about…it’s not about the whole world being split into genders or any of that sort of stuff.”

Listen above to what Nick has facilitated (and who showed up thinking it was something quite different), and why the Tasmanian model is being sought after further afield.
