High up, high on the Mountain we go to - Random (Region Property)
Guides have been having adventures and making friends at Random (our gorgeous Region property at Mount Victoria in the Blue Mountains) for nearly seventy years. It is our very own Guide home. What fun has been shared there, walks, songs, meals and adventures in the bush the canyons and the mountain valleys. It is a still a place of wonder.
There is the astonishing view, it is ever changing and the clouds, the mountain mist and the sunsets are breath taking. You often see the caretaker lyre birds busily digging up the lawn. You might see a wallaby or a wombat beside the cottage.
You are sure to enjoy the songs of magpies and the little bush birds. At night the stars almost fall from the sky and you can explore this night world with our telescopes. From Random Guides can go further to the Jenolan Caves, horse riding in Megalong or to the glow worm tunnel.
Ship, Snore 'n' Shore (June 2018)
Oatley Junior Guides experienced history fist hand when they visited the James Craig Tall Ship. Taking on the duties of sailors, they quickly got to work on the 19th century tall ship. Hauling cargo, swabbing the deck, tying knots, raising the sails and slinging hammocks.
Lark in the Park (May 2018)
In late May, 1st Caringbah Brownie Guides attended Lark in the Park, the new State event for Pre-Junior and Junior Guides. Held at Centennial Park the Guides participated in a fun- filled day of outdoor activities and learning experiences. From pond-dipping and a nature scavenger hunt, to shelter building and creating clay animals with miniature habitats. Everyone had a wonderful (and educational) time!
