Central Australia Trip

Central Australia Trip

Year 11 Students enjoyed a trip to Central Australia, 10 days of immersing themselves in the outback. 

They explored Alice Springs, Kings Canyon, Uluru, Coober Pedy and Adelaide. 

Our trip to Central Australia this year will be one we never forget. After a long and almost torturous bus ride from school, we were greeted with red dirt, blue sky and some of the most beautiful and breathtaking places Australia has to offer, including Uluru and Kings Canon. We watched sunsets, stargazed and challenged ourselves with hikes, whilst learning about the history and culture of our outback. A massive thank you to the teachers who put up with us and to Deb our amazing cook, and Aaron (affectionately known as Azza, A-A-Ron, Ron or Ronald) our incredible bus driver.
