Come & Stay

Welcome to Kangaroobie
Welcome to Kangaroobie

Kangaroobie’s five-day program is the most popular with school groups, however the three-day program is still action-packed. Kangaroobie’s staff are trained to cater for children in grade three, right through to university students. Kangaroobie regularly welcomes school groups from around Australia and overseas – including America, Russia, Japan, Singapore, Korea and Malaysia.

Day 1

Travel to Kangaroobie from Melbourne (travel time about 3 hours). A stop for lunch and a toilet break would be made in Colac.

On arrival at Kangaroobie the group will be welcomed with an introductory talk from the owners, Matt and Sophie Bowker and afternoon tea.

Time will be allowed for settling in and exploring around the camp before going on an orientation walk or hike to the beach.

Night activities – after dinner we head off for a night walk.

Day 2

Teachers or students can choose from a wide variety of activities, including:

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 activity is the Aboriginal interpretation program.

Night activities

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 extra per student (please contact us for current pricing). A trivia night or camp concert/disco is also a hit.

Day 3

Depart Kangaroobie with a packed lunch and travel along the Great Ocean Road – visiting the beautiful coastal scenery of the Port Campbell National Park, including the Twelve Apostles & Loch Ard Gorge, before heading back to school.
