Outdoor and Environmental Studies Wilsons Promontory Bushwalk - Year 9
Last week, Year 9 Outdoor and Environmental Studies students travelled to Wilsons Promontory for a two-night bushwalk.
The students are studying the local ecosystems, historical and contemporary uses for natural environments, as well as how to prepare well for wilderness expeditions. We were blessed with exceptional weather, and all three groups experienced the sense of achievement, carrying heavy packs for 39km to witness some spectacular sights - along with the challenges of self-sufficient camping. The group were pushed outside of their collective comfort zones, and relied on a mix of determination, resourcefulness, and perseverance.
Mr Watson’s night hikers continued late into the first evening, to be rewarded with some quality time the following morning exploring Refuge Cove, and learning about the indigenous history with thanks to Kelly. Miss Scott’s group walked into Little Waterloo Bay on Wednesday night to see the sun setting on the white sand beaches, and enjoyed some funny chats around the cooking circle. Mr Wright’s group were relieved to cross through Sealer’s Creek relatively dry, and then on the last morning were greeted with a stunning sunrise.
