Project Refresh Anakiwa

I want to help with Project Refresh Anakiwa!

Project Refresh Anakiwa is the most significant project to be undertaken at the Outward Bound school since the 1980’s. Over a 3 year period, we will refurbish and future proof Anakiwa, to ensure we can continue to transform the lives of New Zealanders for many years to come! Project Chair, and long time OB supporter Dick Hubbard, will tell you why this project is so important and close to everyone's hearts.

Our Progress

Thanks to a huge kick start from Andrew and Jenny Smith, we're well on the way to achieving our goal, but we've still got a substantial climb ahead! We need $3,000,000 to carry out all of the work that Anakiwa needs to future proof it for generations to come.

Tortuga Launch

Tortuga Launch

With nearly 1,800 people coming through Anakiwa each year, it's essential that all of our life saving equipment is fully equipped and ready to rock in the rare case of an emergency. With our Matakana launch getting near retirement, we're reaching out for a new Tortuga launch to keep our students safe at sea. Read more
