Ian Rockwell

Rocky is the Owner and Director of Boomerang Adventures. He completed a Bachelor of Social Science in Physical Education and Outdoor Recreation, and then a Graduate Diploma of Education. After teaching PD/H/PE for 11 years, he realised his passion was in the outdoors. Taking students out of the classroom and teaching them in a different environment brought him great satisfaction. As a result of this, he left teaching and began Boomerang Adventures. He now spends all his time seeing students grow and learn in different contexts.

One of Rocky's real passions is the outback. He loves taking people of all ages out there to show them around. He is also very passionate about providing a great experience for all those who come away with Boomerang Adventures.
