During this 10 day program students will work on personal and interpersonal development, using Haileybury’s ACHIEVE framework to guide the facilitation. After flying to Perth, students will transfer to a base camp near Margaret River and spend a few days acclimating in a camp setting. Local indigenous elders will run sessions linked to men’s business, rites of passage, and concepts of health and wellbeing with a focus on nature and connection to country. Highlights of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park include abseiling off sea cliffs at Wilyabrup and exploring the Giant’s Cave, a place of rich Noongar lore and one of the earliest sites of human occupation in Australia dating back nearly 50,000 years. Their journey continues along the Cape to Cape walking track as it winds through big trees and forest trails above the Indian Ocean.
