PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This journey will see Silver Duke of Ed students travel to the Wabonga Plateau to spend 4 days bushwalking around the Upper King River region. All students will self-cater – planning and cooking their own meals on trangia stoves. The program provides students with an opportunity to challenge themselves in a positive and supported environment. The groups will be made of up to 14 students, accompanied by a staff member from Braemar College and a Group Leader from OEG. The groups will further be supported by a Course Coordinator overseeing the program.
