Abstract

Onward Bound: — the first 50 years of Outward Bound Australia traces the founding and development of this unique, non-profit, non-government organization. From its earnest beginnings in a climate of post war cultural change, Outward Bound Australia (OBA) has adapted to remain relevant and currently attracts some 5,000 participants a year to its courses.

The scouring of archival and public records combined with personal stories from past and present OBA founders, staff and participants makes this a colourful social history of an organisation that in the past fifty years has touched more than 250,000 Australian lives.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
