The South West camps are usually based at the Busselton Baptist Camping Centre located on the calm shores of Geographe Bay.

Day 1

Departing school at 8.30am, we travel down to the South West of Western Australia. We usually call into Australind for a comfort stop before heading for Busselton. We head straight to camp to unpack, familiarize everyone with the campsite and run through the rules / boundaries.
After lunch , we drive out to the end of Cape Naturaliste for a tour and climb to the top of Naturaliste lighthouse. (We often spot whales during whale season!) Learn about the early lighthouse keepers and the perils they faced. – (Usually with a ghost story or two!) Recently renovated, the Lighthouse precinct now boasts a new viewing deck, new shop and classroom for inclement weather.
Afterwards we head back to our campsite.. Time for showers & dinner!

Day 2

Firstly we visit Yallingup Maze. We enjoy challenging the exciting timber maze, complete with towers & bridges. Students develop strategies and teamwork in negotiating the maze. To stimulate the mind, there are also puzzles & games to play in the café & gift shop area. Also, enjoy the large grassed areas for ball games and wander through the Nature Play area. Be aMAZEd! We have lunch in the grounds before heading to Ngilgi Cave at Yallingup – Enjoy a fully guided tour of the ancient showcave & its formations. Learn about the spirit of the cave and try singing in the huge ampitheatre. Experienced guides provide heaps of interesting and educational facts and info! Our last stop on the way home is a very popular place – the famous Simmo’s Ice Creamery where we enjoy one of the delicious flavours available.
