Five Day Program
Teachers or students can choose from a wide variety of activities, including:
- Low Ropes*
- Obstacle Course
- Hut Building
- Bush Cooking
The activities indicated * are recommended for a group of around 100 – i.e. four groups of 25 students rotating around through the day with a break between for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The activities all operate for 1½ hours. A good alternative to the Low Ropes activity is the Aboriginal interpretation program.
Once the sun sets we recommend an excursion under the cover of darkness to see the spectacular glow worms at Melba Gully, which is a pristine and perfect example of our regional cool temperate rainforest. The beautiful Aire River flows through the towering tree ferns, beech myrtles, and enormous eucalypts, where there’s a chance of seeing other wildlife such as swamp wallabies. Keep an eye out at Melba Gully for the Otways carnivorous snail.
Bush Dancing with Ken Hooke. Ken runs a great night of fun and involvement. The Bush dancing costs $4 per student (a minimum of $200). A trivia night or camp concert/disco is also a hit.
