Kangaroobie is flanked by the Great Otway National Park, Port Campbell National Park, the Southern Ocean and the Gellibrand River – providing a Pandora’s Box of study options.

“Our Five Day Program takes students into a myriad of different ecosystems from changing coastal environments with highly adapted plant and animal life, to a volcanic crater, the fragile limestone coast which is constantly being worn away by chemical and physical weathering plus the Gellibrand River and associated ecosystems,” Matt said.

The world famous Twelve Apostles are just a few of the towering stacks, sheer limestone cliffs, arches, island and blowholes along the Shipwreck Coast which have been sculpted in the last million years.

The coast was formed between 10 and 20 million years ago, by countless tiny marine animal skeletons beneath the sea – creating limestone. As the ocean levels dropped limestone cliffs were revealed and have been shaped by the wind and waves of the Southern Ocean ever since.

“Our coastline is made up of exposed clifftops, heathlands affected by salt-laden winds, fragile soils and constantly changing sand dunes.”
