The Australian Adventure Activity Standard (AAAS) and the completed activity Good Practice Guide’s (GPG’s) have been published, prior to the official launch in September 2019. The pre-released documents are available from the australianaas.org.au website home page.
The outdoor community has actively supported the development of the AAAS and GPG’s so the Steering Committee wanted to make the completed sections available as soon as possible.
Providers can use the pre-released documents to begin reviewing their activity systems well before the Australian AAS are adopted by all jurisdictions.
Official launch and adoption
The ‘official launch’ is planned for September 2019.
It is likely that adoption of the Australian AAS by all States and Territories would then occur early 2020. More detail on the adoption timeline will be released in due course.
What is being released?
The following completed documents are available now:
- Australian Adventure Activity Standard (AAAS)
- Core GPG (common good practice for all activities)
- Activity specific GPG’s:
Still to come
The Challenge Courses GPG (low and high ropes) is nearing completion and will be available early in February 2019.
Work has recently started on the following GPG’s:
- Sea kayaking
These four GPG’s will be released at the official launch in September 2019.
Thanks to all the TWG members
The Steering Committee wishes to thank all the Technical Working Group (TWG) members for their work and contributions.
This project would not have been possible without the volunteer efforts of all the TWG members.
