We spent the day before the excursion up on the mountain with friends who were camping there for a few days. We would've joined them if Clif could have taken a couple of days of work but we enjoyed spending the day before making a fire, damper and cooking it over the coals nevertheless!
The excursion itself consisted of 4 activities, Archery, Rock Fossicking, Bush art and then at the end of the day all the groups came together for a bushwalk and to learn some Bush survival skills from our guide. The boys enjoyed the day immensely, having fun with their friends and learning new skills.
Here are a few pictures of our day.
