Outward Bound School


387 Anakiwa Rd, Anakiwa, Marlborough Sounds


0800 OUTWARD (688 927)

Outward Bound is New Zealand's leading organisation for showing people their full potential through outdoor challenge and adventure. Established in 1962, OB still operates from its original location, Anakiwa, in the Marlborough Sounds. Anakiwa (near Picton) is regarded as the most perfectly situated Outward Bound school in the world. The natural timbered buildings merge gracefully into the curve of the bay and are backed by native bush. A long jetty stretches to where the school’s small fleet of cutters are at anchor. The ‘classrooms’ of the school are the native bush, mountains, rivers and seaways of Marlborough. The Outward Bound Trust of New Zealand is a member of Outward Bound International. This was founded by Kurt Hahn in Wales in 1941. There are 42 member countries. Hahn was an educator. In his words: “We are all better than we know. If only we can come to discover this, we may never again settle for anything less.”
