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

The Trust has acquired land south of Rathdowney adjoining the World Heritage Border Ranges National Park for a nature reserve and venue for education. On this magnificent site a world class Centre is being built. Here, using the unique purpose-built residential facility, quality experiential environmental education for the whole community will be provided.

In subtropical and eucalypt forests participants will have the opportunity to discover an amazing natural world. At the same time Wild Mountains can reinforce its educational programs with examples of renewable power generation.

Now we will have a designated shed to store all this equipment in.

Unfortunately with all the hassles we haven’t communicated our successes very well but back to the digital world...

The website is up and firing thanks to the support of Tim from Jethro Management who has brought it back to life at a very modest cost to the organisation. Our stories are up again and you will be able to catch up on the much o what has been...

 Days of magic, music, learning and experiences have made a deep impression on all of us, the students and their teachers.

Thanks to a recommendation from Gilbert who first made contact looking for an Earthkeepers program for his Noosa Steiner students some 7 years ago, Steiner teacher Heather approached us for a camp. Subsequently Wild Mountains has had the good fortune to recently host 26 year 5 students from Shearwater Steiner School, Mullumbimby.We were able to extend the Earthkeepers program over 5 days and include other Earth Education activities such as Model Planets and as well as lantern making, music and a special campside fire.
