Our HQ for this program is hosted out of Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, only a short walk, or bike to some of Australia’s best fly fishing and mountain bike trails.

There is no other lodging like Lake Crackenback anywhere in Australia, so we feel so privileged to call this property home.

What's Involved

Being a man connected to nature is a powerful landscape for us to review our mental fitness and to grow as men, in an environment we all belong in. There are thousands of lessons to be learnt and metaphors to consider out there.

Hunting a trout with a fly you tied yourself, standing at the base of a gin-clear rapid, and all the while surrounded by mountains is something that touches the soul.


Booking Fee: $1,400.00

This is an all-inclusive program, supplied with incredible mountain themed chalet accomodations, meals and hire of specialist mountain bike and fly fishing equipment complemented with world-class facilitation by our team.

The Fly Program have heavily subsidised fees through our special family of supporters around Australia who make regular tax-deductible donations to make this possible, as well as our corporate partners.

We are pleased to have The Fly Program Scholarship Program that can partially, or fully support you through the program.

We are grateful for the support of the Dyson Family Bequest, who have granted us a very special financial gift to support participants into our programs with partial, or full payment sponsored based on the individual needs.

If you need support, please do not hesitate to request further information because we would love to see you on a program!

Course Summary

Surrounded by Australia’s highest peaks and the magical Kosciuszko National Park, Men In Flight: Snowy Mountains will always remain our founding retreat, centred in the epicentre of Australia’s alpine wilderness.

The Snowy Mountains have long been famous for the story ‘Man from Snowy River,’ but the depth of this program reaches far beyond the amazing fisheries and stories told in tales and poems.

The course will lead participants to explore the intricacies of fly fishing freestone rivers and high country meadow streams for wild trout, all the time surrounded by snow-capped peaks and twisted Snow Gums. Just to stand in these places is special, to explore it with The Fly Program… we promise it to be life-shaping!

Inclusive to all our programs, physical fitness is key to our curriculum. We will explore what has become a world-class trail network that runs its path down the Thredbo River on board on of our Trek Mountain Bikes, or E-Mountain Bikes for those who may not have had as much experience or riding fitness.

We utilise as much locally sourced produce as we can and mindfully prepare it over the fire to be shared as a group. Cooking beautiful, nutritious food with flame started with a flint and steel by a river is something very important to our people and we love to share this as a key pillar to all our programs.

Tied into the physical and nutritional elements of all our retreats, we deliver mental fitness sessions that are authentic, fit-for-purpose and qualified.

The Fly Program’s aim is to consistently build life-shaping experiences that manifest to purpose-driven men who can be stronger contributors to their own well-being, their families, friendship groups and communities.
