On Sunday 24 September, students embarked on a full day adventure to Yuraygir National Park, one of the most diverse bioregions in Australia.
The trips itinerary included swimming at Angourie’s Blue Pools, seeing wild kangaroos in Yuraygir National Park and the stunning coastal formations at Red Cliff. The journey from Byron Bay to Yuraygir is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, however our trip was longer as it included important pitstops along the way. First, students stopped in Angourie for a dip in the Blue and Green Pools.
Yuraygir National Park comprises coastal landforms, rainforest, forest, woodland and wetlands. It has strong spiritual significance to the Aboriginal community. The Yaegl and Gumbaynggirr aboriginal peoples lived off the land and would hold ceremonies in the area. The park’s wildlife includes wild kangaroos, emus (an endangered species with less than 100 left in the park), white-bellied sea eagles, yellow-tailed black cockatoos and many other rare and threatened species.
Our students enjoyed a spectacular Sunday adventuring the beautiful, diverse surrounds of Byron Bay.
