Last month the Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation students spent a scenic three days in the stunning Freycinet National Park, bushwalking and demonstrating outdoor leadership and navigation skills.
The group pushed through two long days to Cooks Beach and Wineglass Bay campsites with good humour, setting up in the dark on the first night without any trouble at all. We powered on, in very strong winds and rain crossing Mt Graham on our second day, before enjoying a surprisingly sunny lunch where we all warmed up and dried out.
Highlights were late night contests such as the Table Challenge and sumo wrestling in the sand. On the last day we crossed Wineglass Bay in record time playing Tiggy, with guest instructor Cody McCraken, uncatchable despite all strategies. We enjoyed a brisk swim in the bay before a short climb to the lookout and on to the car park to finish at lunchtime. Special thanks to our instructors Renee Harrington and Cody McCraken and our 24 contact, Nate Welch on this trip.
