"Live life outdoors"
OV is a non-profit organisation which represents all Victorians who appreciate the benefits of being active in the Outdoors.
A not-for-profit, membership organisation, Outdoors Victoria (OV) provides advocacy, representation, support, coordination, research, information services and policy development for members and other interested parties.
The outdoors sector broadly encompasses four areas:
Outdoor education - engages students in practical and active learning experiences, typically in natural settings, for benefits to the person, the community and nature.
Outdoor recreation - provides active recreation and leisure pursuits in the outdoors.
Nature-based tourism - provides visitors with both passive and active experiences directly related to natural attractions and places.
Outdoor therapy - provides an active approach to nature-based therapy, to assist in personal development and increase personal health and wellbeing benefits.
