Abstract

The field of, as we call it in the UK, outdoor education, recreation and training (in strict alphabetic order as those towards the end of the line are always quick to point out) is, in Australia, evolving from its roots as a social movement into a profession or an industry. As Simon Priest points out social movements and industries alike are noted for having life cycles of growth, steady maturation, plateau and decline after which they reinvent themselves or disappear. He places Australia at the point of maturation some way behind the UK which he places in decline.
