Our Team

The team at Outward Bound New Zealand are based in both Wellington and beautiful Anakiwa in the Marlborough Sounds.

National Team

Wellington is the home of our ‘administration’ hub. Our office on Queens Wharf houses our enrolments team, marketing, finance and fundraising. We also have staff working remotely around the motu! We’re always here to help, so if you are local or visiting Wellington, please come in and see us!
