Great out­doors fun at open day

Midland Reporter - - Opinion -

GET out­side and get into na­ture by head­ing to the free Bickley Camp Com­mu­nity Open Day on April 30.

The Depart­ment of Sport and Re­cre­ation camp in Orange Grove has been host­ing camps for 72 years.

DSR head of camps Tim Swart said fam­i­lies could try their hand at ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties such as the fly­ing fox, ca­noe­ing and orienteering.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the Bickley camp with­out a for­mal book­ing while get­ting closer to the nat­u­ral beauty of the sur­rounds of the Perth Hills,” he said.

Na­ture educator and en­thu­si­ast Eric McCrum will give talks on lo­cal flora and fauna.

Park at Camp Wat­tle Grove and take the free shut­tle, ride your bike or walk the hill to the camp as there is no park­ing on­site.

Light food will be avail­able for cash sale but you can also bring along a pic­nic and en­joy the grounds.

For de­tails, check out Bickley Out­door Re­cre­ation Camp on Face­book. The open day runs 10am-3pm and is an al­co­hol and smoke-free event.

Try the ac­tiv­i­ties at the DSR camp in Orange Grove.
