LOYAC Expeditions

Learn to lead in a classroom like no other.

Leave behind the hustle and bustle of 21st century living and venture into the wilderness with our first LOYAC expedition. Join us as we head to Three Capes Track in Tasmania, and hike its breathtakingly beautiful 48 km trail. Leap outside your comfort zone, as you face real challenges and discover your leadership style.
