PATHFINDER EXPEDITION

SOUTH

The Southern Expedition for this year will again be held in the Goulburn River National Park to the west of Drummers Flat. We will use our annual theme of “Dare 2 Prepare”. The cost will be kept at $35 / person (pathfinders & adults). 

This will be a Rogain with A-B-C-D gradings for groups of a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12. All participants will be focusing on their map and compass skills and will be challenged to Dare 2 prepare.

Clubs will need to bring their own drinking water and there will be multiple water crossings so water shoes or similar will be required.

All clubs will need to bring their own water in containers labelled well so that we can return the containers to the relevant clubs.



PATHFINDER CAMPOREE






CAMPOREE SITE
The UNSTOPPABLE Australian Camporee will be held just out of Molesworth, Victoria, on an invting river plain next to the Goulburn River. There are beautiful big river gums shading grassed flats, and surrounded by rolling hills and farming communities. There is a rich variety of wildlife in the area, from echidnas to wombats, kangaroos, koalas, blue-tongue lizards and kookaburras!

Molesworth was established in 1875, and sits on the banks of the Goulburn River where 6000 ML of water flows past every day! It is 90 min north-east of Melbourne Airport, making it a very accessible location for all our clubs around Australia. In January we will look forward to pleasant temperatures, with highs around 26ºC, and lows of 15ºC. We can’t wait to welcome you to this picturesque location!
