The Wild Mountains Trust is an independent, community focused, non-profit organisation providing leadership in environmental education and conservation.

Wild Mountains has a vision of a world where people lead fulfilling lives while sharing the earths resources with all of the life forms on this planet and without degrading our life support systems. This vision has become a world class centre where environmental education in a natural setting is the cornerstone of learning. We believe the best way of achieving this vision is through education, inspiring community to lead environmentally conscious lifestyles, and actively participating in conserving habitat and other resources.

The Trust has acquired land south of Rathdowney adjoining the World Heritage Border Ranges National Park for a nature reserve and venue for education. In subtropical and eucalypt forests, participants of our programs have the opportunity to discover an amazing natural world. Here, using the unique purpose-built residential facility, quality experiential environmental education for the whole community is provided. Our vision sees people sharing life’s amazing natural wonders through programs that help them to understand their relationship to the natural world. Wild Mountains’ supporters participate in the functioning of a centre that demonstrates new technologies in its building infrastructure, renewable power, waste management, water collection and sound land stewardship. For the benefit of future generations and reinforcement of learnings from our educational programs.

At Wild Mountains we recognise the traditional custodians, acknowledging that they are part of the oldest living culture on earth, living on, shaping and managing this land for tens of thousands of years. The Midginberri tribe of the Yugambeh language grouping are the traditional custodians, who continue to have an enduring connection to this land. As present carers, we acknowledge their culture and story and endeavour to the best of our abilities to nurture this land for future generations.
