Continued from Charnwood Outdoor Education Centre
…On a tight time-schedule we move swiftly onto John’s next camp located only minutes from Charnwood, Nillacootie Outdoor Centre. Off the Midland Highway between the Mount Strathbogie State Forest and Mount Samaria State Park right on the shoreline of the lake. Also a stone’s throw from Mansfield, (gateway to the Alps and home of the 4WD ute). On arrival, the day is bright, sunny and the reflection of the surrounding hills in the lake is picture postcard stuff. The lake is apparently full of red fin and angling is a popular activity at the camp.
The Camp also built in the 1970’s, is a 92 bed facility with a range of activities such as abseiling, archery, bouldering, canoeing, fishing, flying fox, frisbee golf, low ropes to name a few.
Thanks to John for being so welcoming and giving us a full run-down of Auscamp (also for allowing Pete to re-live some memories).
