Re­mark­able school camp

The Australian Education Reporter - - GREAT LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS -

NES­TLED at the base of Mount Re­mark­able, Camp Wil­lochra is an ideal base for school camps and ex­plo­ration of the South­ern Flin­ders Ranges.

Camp Wil­lochra con­sists of three wings sur­round­ing a cen­tral oval and can ac­com­mo­date up to 94 school stu­dents and staff seek­ing a ru­ral en­vi­ron­ment at a rea­son­able price.

There are plenty of beau­ti­ful hik­ing and moun­tain bik­ing trails in the Mount Re­mark­able Na­tional Park with many bush­walk­ers chal­leng­ing them­selves with the re­ward­ing climb to the sum­mit of Mount Re­mark­able, look­ing over the Wil­lochra Plain and the Spencer Gulf.

The Na­tional Park is home to the en­dan­gered yel­low-footed rock wal­laby as well as echid­nas, goan­nas, mon­i­tors, emus, west­ern grey kan­ga­roos and more than 117 na­tive bird species.

Camp Wil­lochra is per­fectly sit­u­ated as a base for a range of ac­tiv­i­ties and of­fers plenty of out­door sport­ing space, a 10 me­tre swim­ming pool and en­ter­tain­ment op­tions for stu­dents, in­clud­ing a wel­com­ing camp fire to sit around on a cold win­ter’s night.
