2016 Camp Cost Guide

Our Accommodation:

We have exclusive use of Glenbrook Country Retreat, Margaret River, for our December Adventure Camp 2016. Glenbrook is on Darch Road, south of Margaret River.

How to get there:

Travel to Margaret River and then continue south along the Bussell Hwy through the Margaret River township for 5km until you come to Darch Rd on your left, where the Watershed Winery turnoff is. Turn left onto Darch Rd, follow until you come to the Glenbrook sign on your right, which is just before the road turns to gravel. Turn into the Glenbrook property, follow the road and when you get to the fork take the right fork towards the buildings. You will see a large hall on the left and a parking area near the dorm rooms.

Once you’ve parked walk into the dorm area and ask for Markus, Sarah or Nik. We can direct you to your accommodation. Remember, first in best dressed so if you want your pick of rooms try to arrive by 11am. Rooms will only be accessible after 2pm because they are being vacated that morning by another camp group, but you can get dibs earlier.
If you get lost on your way to Glenbrook, please give us a call and we can direct you.

Activity specific equipment:

Mountain Biking:

We will hire the bikes and helmets on your behalf, or you can bring your own.
You will need to bring:

  • Comfortable clothing
  • Closed in footwear
  • Your own personal helmet if you don’t wish to use a hire helmet

We supply the kayaks, paddles and life jackets.
You will need to bring:

  • Clothes/bathers/wetsuits that can get wet

    Closed in footwear that can get wet – THESE ARE A MUST, we may have to get out of the kayaks from time to time during our paddle and we don’t want any cut feet
  • Plenty of drinking water
  • Dry bags if you have them for storing food,etc

Caving:

We supply the helmets.
You will need to bring:

  • Headlamp or torch. If you have a handheld torch we suggest putting it on a lanyard so you don’t have to always hold on to it. Headlamps tend to be easier if you have one
  • Plenty of spare batteries – It’s good to carry a spare light source or spare batteries while in the cave, just in case
  • Long pants and long shirt – try to wear clothes that are hard wearing as the rocks can be unforgiving to clothing. If you have a pair of overalls these are even better.
  • Sturdy footwear such as hiking boots.

  • Sturdy footwear with good grip such as hiking boots
