What to bring:

Now for some important information about what to bring with you to the camp. Some of the activities require specific equipment to make your trip safe and enjoyable, so make sure you have everything you need.

Camping:

We are tenting in the area called The Pines at the Big Valley Campsite. You can pitch your tents anywhere in the vicinity of The Pines. There’s plenty of space for everyone. . The camping area is not powered, so don’t bring anything that needs electricity. We will be firing up the generator at night to run some basic lights, but that’s it. The toilet/shower block is a 150m walk from the campground. You will need to bring your own eskies for your food storage. We will be bringing our fridges that run on gas, but they will be very limited on space and will only be used to store our essentials like milk that we will need regularly. Markus is bringing a few gas cooktops that he will set up in the gazebo for communal use.

You will need to bring:

All your camping requirements, such as tent, mattress, sleeping bag, camp chair, cooking utensils, cutlery, plates, etc.

Toiletries – Sunscreen, bug repellent etc

Warm clothing – it can get cold there at night, quite a bit colder than Perth temperatures

All your food for the weekend. If you want to share that’s awesome, especially on the first night when we’ll all be a bit weary.

Mountain Biking:

We can hire mountain bikes and helmets on your behalf from a local store, or you can bring your own. If you need to hire a mountain bike let us know as soon as possible and please mark on your registration form.

You will need to bring:

Comfortable clothing

Closed in footwear

Your own personal helmet if you don’t wish to use a hire helmet

Plenty of water – a Camelbak type hydration pack is a good idea, or a couple of drink bottles. The hire bikes have bottle holders

Backpack to carry your water and snacks

Abseiling / Rock Climbing / Caving:

You will need to bring:

Headlamp or torch. If you have a 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

Long pants and long shirt – try to wear clothes that are hard wearing as rocks can be unforgiving to clothing. If you have a pair of overalls these are even better

Sturdy footwear such as hiking boots.

Plenty of water

Kyaking:

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

  • Clothes/bathers/wetsuits that can get wet
  • Towel
    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

 All our adventures are guided by fully qualified instructors; your safety always comes first.
