Recreation and Excursions

There is plenty of time to relax by crystal clear Mary River or beautiful lakes around Crystal Waters. Or to do some bush-walking and watch the birds and wildlife. Perhaps go for a jog with the kangaroos, or sit around the campfire listening to stories and join in a sing-along. Take a night-time bush walk to see the many nocturnal creatures. (It is totally safe here to wander around at night.)
A full day tour forms part of the course. We visit an awesome, mature rainforest ecosystem, a very popular craft market, and the beautiful beaches and National Park at Noosa Heads.
There are also opportunities for side trips on days off. In previous years, students have sunbathed on one of the fabulous Sunshine Coast beaches, gone horse riding on Australian trail horses, visited the world famous Australia Zoo (and seen the Crocodile Man’s show there), cuddled koalas in a deer sanctuary, visited Underwater World and walked underneath sharks in a giant overhead aquarium, shopped in the Eumundi markets and gone rainforest bush walking. This area is full of interesting places and things to do, and faculty staff are happy to help students enjoy themselves.
