Established in 1980, Birrigai is a residential outdoor and environmental education centre. Birrigai is designated as a school in special circumstances by the ACT Goverment's Education and Training Directorate.

As a school in special circumstances, Birrigai has a Board and related governance arrangements.

Birrigai proudly supports ACT and interstate schools in delivering high quality educational programs and experiences to students.  It also opens its doors to community and corporate groups for specialist team-building and leadership programs, and for the accommodation and catering of workshops, seminars and special events.

At Birrigai, we provide and model challenging, insightful and personally meaningful experiences in an environment that allows reflection on our own well-being and that of our planet.

We seek to educate for a sustainable future.

Preschool to Year 12 students from both government and non-government schools are engaged in outdoor and environmental education programs that aim to expand their knowledge and understanding of their interactions with the Australian environment.

Following an experience at Birrigai students and teachers will have greater knowledge of the natural environment, value it as a fundamental aspect of their environment, and be aware of how human action is important to conserving and enhancing it.
