Eildon & Jungai (Taungurung Country)
During this 10 day program students will work on personal and interpersonal development, using Haileybury’s ACHIEVE framework to guide the facilitation. The program consists of a combined residential community project and an expedition. The residential project will see students assisting Jungai’s Cultural Heritage Officer Auntie Aurora in revitalising Jungai’s nature trail, re-building traditional humpy shelters, writing and installing signage at sites of significance and translating Taungurung words into English for future groups. The Expedition section will see students hiking, canoeing and navigating through the beautiful Eildon National Park for six days, practicing camping and navigation skills.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
RaftingRafting with us provides just the right combination of gentle calm and excitement. Float with us down untouched waterways, with surprise, challenge and fun at every turn.
