Our Team

Riki Karaka

General Manager

Joined Adventure Centre in 2014

Essentially I want to ensure that the business pays its bills and makes a profit. That may sound overly commercial, but all those profits go to support underprivileged children in Bali Indonesia so profit is important. My role is to drive the business forward and create new income streams whilst maintaining customer satisfaction and existing income streams. If keeping things running smoothly means I have to facilitate an activity, wash dishes or clean a toilet…then that’s what I’ll be doing.

Jared Fairall

Assistant Manager

As Assistant Manager I have a very “hands on” roll when it comes to all the different facets of the business with my time divided between the bookings, catering , housekeeping and activities departments.

I also facilitate a number of different activities at the Adventure Centre including archery, canoeing, zorb ball, commando course and all the high rope activities. I try to create an atmosphere of fun for all our clients every day!

Bruce Kean

Head Chef

Joined Adventure Centre in 2013.

I am the chief cook and bottle washer. My role is to order, prepare and serve good, nutritious meals for our guests. I keep in touch with our team to ensure that pre-arranged dietary requirements are accommodated. Whenever I can I like to chat with visiting staff and campers – what can I say, I like people almost as much as I like food.

Officially my job is to facilitate the camp activities. Unofficially, and in my view more importantly, my job is to inspire students and staff and add a bit of sunshine, laughter and amazement to everyone’s day.

We had the most amazing time and your helpful and friendly staff made it so memorable


I recently had the pleasure to attend the Coffs Adventure Centre with my school for a few days.  I came as an assistant but personally had the most rewarding few days.  I tried things I never would have, stepped out of my comfort zone and achieved things I didn’t think were possible.  By doing this it encouraged the children to push themselves that little bit further and I got the privilege to witness the children I didn’t think would involve themselves in activities just shine. To see them so happy and working as a team was also very rewarding.  The staff were all so fantastic and enthusiastic which also made our stay that much more enjoyable.  Thank you for the experience.
