There is plenty of fun, adventure and educational places to visit and things to do in the South West region of Western Australia.

Optional Activities available: See our additional activities page. There are heaps of exciting activities you can add or change!

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 will head straight to camp to unpack, run through the rules / boundaries etc and settle in. After lunch, we enjoy the fun of RADROCK Climbing Wall (or alternatively their mobile High Ropes Course). Either activity is great exercise and guaranteed to burn off some excess energy! 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.
Return to camp for showers and dinner.

Day 3

After breakfast this morning we travel down to Margaret River and visit Eagle’s Heritage – to see the birds of prey and a display of the ancient art of falconry. The lucky ones may get to wear a glove and have a bird of prey sit on their arm. We have lunch back at camp before heading off to Cape Naturaliste for a different & exciting cultural experience with Josh Whiteland (aka Koomal) and his Kaya Cape Experience. Enjoy a ‘welcome to country’ before a short walk around Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, surrounded on 3 sides by oceans, interpreting the landscape to you through the eyes of an indigeneous custodian. Gather at their ‘private meeting place’ for a hands-on interactive experience, artefact interpretation and didgeridoo music session.

(An alternative in warmer months is the fun of Sea Kayaking & fun team games – all water based regulations are covered by fully qualified instructor or maybe try the mobile high ropes with the guys from RADROCK – they bring the climbing wall or ropes course to camp – all equipment supplied and qualified instructors)

Day 4

Clean, Pack up and depart camp this morning around 9.00am. On our journey home, we call into the famous Busselton Jetty – almost 2km long. We take a walk along the jetty to see locals catching fish and crabs. Then its lunch at Australind before heading back to school arriving approx. 2.30pm.
