Bronze Practise Camp to Binna Burra

Mother Nature smiled on those students who are tackling the Duke of Edinburgh program, during last weekend’s trek in Lamington National Park.

15 students and two College staff – Andrew Sole and Callie Hewitt – together with Duke of Edinburgh Captain, Caitlin Moritz, took part in an Adventurous Journey practice camp at Binna Burra.

Students camped for one night and spent two days walking along rainforest trails, encountering exotic wildlife and tropical bush. The weather was ideal with sunny, yet cool, conditions for the walks. Students explored ancient forests and discovered much about the heritage of the area.

Their qualifying camp will take place next term at O’Reilly’s in the Green Mountains.
