Today we honour and say happy 80th birthday to Rob Simson, one of the fathers of outdoor education in Queensland and Australia.

Rob was instrumental in: the introduction of environmental studies into the Queensland Secondary geography curriculum; leading some of the first school excursions into Carnarvon Gorge; the establishment of Queensland’s first dedicated Outdoor Education Centre at Maroon Dam (MOEC), the formation of Outdoor Educators Association of Queensland (OEAQ) and the development of the sport of orienteering in Australia. In fact he is still setting race courses!

A retired geography and OE teacher and Principal, his passion for landscapes, environment and experiential learning continue to this day and are explored on his blog (robinsimson) and in his spiritual memoir To and From God, which has a lot to do with his outdoor education and teaching life.

Cheers to you, Rob, and thanks for being such a great pioneer!
